Service & Action

Civic engagement will challenge you, inspire you, and prepare you for a life of active citizenship. Begin your search for volunteer opportunities on our How to Volunteer page or visit us on the second floor of Tyler Haynes Commons to learn more about ways that you can get involved.


You don't need your own car to get off campus, experience the region, and engage with community partner organizations.

A Lifelong Practice

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement understands civic engagement to be a lifelong practice that spans numerous modes of service and action and requires support along the way for knowledge-building, reflection, and project funding.
