Community Service

S.E.R.V.E. (Service, Education, Responsibility, Voice, and Engagement)

Community service is vital to a liberal arts institution. Community service provides the occasion for holistic engagement—intellectually, spiritually and physically—in projects both within and beyond the campus. Moreover, community service challenges students to push outside themselves to care for others and to push inside themselves in examination of values and beliefs. The Office of Student Development, along with other campus partners, facilitates regular community service opportunities for the YHC community through SERVE. For more information on SERVE, contact Tonya Nix, SERVE Coordinator.

While all students are encouraged to participate in service events throughout the year, each Greek/service organization is required to complete at least one service/volunteer project per semester. A minimum of 10 volunteer hours is required per member and each project must include no less than 50 percent of the organization’s membership. Volunteer/service hours must be certified by the Director of Student Involvement no later than two weeks prior to the end of the semester.
