Community Service: September 11

  • How does community service differ from volunteerism, club involvement, performance, or activities?
  • Why is sustained, meaningful community service an important aspect of my college experience?
  • What resources exist that can aid me in my search for sustained, meaningful service?
  • What’s an REU?

Kevin will walk you through the Cook Honors College concept of, requirements for, and resources for finding and selecting meaningful sustained community service while in college. Then, as per your schedule, attend the IUP Community Involvement Fair that same day between noon and 3:00 p.m. in the Crimson Event Center, Folger Hall if classes permit. Here’s more information about the Community Involvement Fair.

Assignment: Submit a list of at least three organizations/agencies with which you interacted, providing responses to the following questions:

    1. Do I find the goals and work of this organization meaningful? 
    2. Can I commit to this organization in a sustained way over time?
    3. What skill sets will this opportunity provide that are important to my development or career interests?
