Short and Long-Term Civic Engagement Opportunities

The UCSC organizes civic engagement opportunities throughout the year, in both short- and long-term formats. Short-term volunteer opportunities include individual days of targeted community service: Engage Chicago Through Service (Freshmen only), MLK Day of Service, Earth Day, Day of Service and Reflection. Students seeking a one-day volunteer commitment can sign up for these service days online. The UCSC also organizes a series of Dinner Dialogues which aim to connect students, staff, faculty, and alumni to local organizations to build community and explore opportunities for collaboration. 2-3 times per quarter, these dinners occur with various partners in Woodlawn, Washington Park, and Bronzeville.
