Community Service

The Community Service program, located within the Office of Student Life, directs the University's community service programs. We coordinate 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 Student Life 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!
