Community Service

Community Service requires students to involve themselves in the community with the intent to better the world around them. We offer many opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to participate in community service. We also serve as a resource for community partners seeking TU volunteers.


How can I volunteer? 

Students can participate in a variety of volunteer opportunities on and off campus throughout the year.

Track your community service using Involved @ TU. Service hours can be tracked in association with a student organization or as an individual.  Involvements are reported on your Student Engagement Record.
