Community Service

CWRU offers various avenues for you to support the community, while building your own strengths as a scholar and citizen.

By volunteering, you can:

  • Enhance your own education by tutoring children and adults
  • Improve your skills by providing needed health care in underserved areas locally and around the world
  • Develop civic awareness by witnessing and confronting the obstacles faced by disadvantaged communities and victims of natural disasters
  • Become a more active citizen, leader and critical thinker by identifying areas of need and implementing solutions to eradicate inequality

A dedicated office for community engagement helps students find opportunities that meet their goals and their time commitments—from the occasional volunteer to significant internship-like commitments, complete with stipends and specialized training in social and community issues.

Opportunities to perform service abroad, often for course credit, are popular choices, and include short-term trips during academic breaks.
