At the Community Engagement and Service Center, we encourage lifelong learning and service by providing opportunities to serve on campus and within the community. We seek out opportunities that build upon core values of service, citizenship, diversity, ethics, and collaboration that create an enduring service oriented mentality. The DSUSA Community Engagement and Service Center is a branch of student government led by an advisor with four student leaders: a vice president of service and three service leaders that make up the Service Council.
The Service Council plans and organizes a major monthly service project and two large-scale Campus to Community service projects during the semester. Every week of the semester the Service Council provides service with at least one of our 13 community partners. The Community Engagement and Service Center is primarily for students but all community members are welcome to get involved. Our service and volunteer opportunities range in commitment from just a couple of hours to year long commitments with organizations such as United Way Dixie, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Dixie Care and Share, and Fridays Kids Respite. To find out more information about the Service Center and how to get involved, please stop by the Student Involvement and Leadership Department on the second floor of the Gardner Center office 227, or visit our website at: dixiestudentlife.com. As you get involved in service and volunteer opportunities, you can track all of your projects and hours through Orgsync, a program that keeps track of all the clubs and organizations on campus. Through this program you can be notified of service opportunities happening on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
