The Office of Community Service, located within the Office of Student Life, directs the University's community service programs. The Office coordinates a variety of service opportunities throughout the year that EKU students, faculty, and staff can participate in both on and off campus.
Whether it's to fulfill a class requirement or just because they want to get involved, students looking for volunteer opportunities can visit the Office of Community Service and Student Engagement to get connected with local volunteer and leadership opportunities that meet their individual needs and fit their busy schedules! From working to protect sea turtles over spring break to building a home for a family over the summer in Honduras to planting trees on reclaimed mine sites in eastern Kentucky to making fleece blankets and pillows on campus for children, there a multitude of opportunities to give back locally, nationally, and internationally! Please contact us to find out more about the different ways you can get actively involved in your world through service!
The Office also serves as a resource to the EKU community for all things service related! Need to volunteer for a class? Want real-world, hands-on experience related to your major or a possible career? Want to explore a new part of the country or world? Interested in planning a service and need some assistance? Just call, email, or stop by! We are always happy help!
EKU Named to the 2013 President's Higher Education Service Honor Roll
The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measureable outcomes in the communities they serve.
EKU's selection to the Honor Roll is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government of our commitment to service and civic engagement on our campus and in our community. What a great example of the Power of Maroon at work! Go Colonels!
