Community Service Learning Center

The Community Service Learning Center prepares students to become active, global citizens who are committed to a life of community engagement and democratic participation.

How to Give Back During COVID-19:

We realize that during challenging times there's a natural impulse to want to help others. Especially during times like these, there can be gaps in the volunteer workforce and a larger need for assistance in the community. To help students, faculty, and staff learn about ways they might volunteer or donate, check out the resources provided by the Office of Student Life's Community Service Learning Center. We also encourage you to regularly check the Centers for Disease Control site and the GVSU Coronavirus site for the most relevant information on how to keep yourself and our communities safe and healthy.
