CWRU Community Week

CWRU Community Week is a week-long celebration aimed at making stronger connections between CWRU and residents from the surrounding neighborhoods. CWRU students, faculty, and staff will get to know their community neighbors through daily volunteer service projects hosted by local community-based non-profits.

Commitment to the Greater Cleveland community is part of the history and DNA of Case Western Reserve University. In 2003, the Staff Advisory Council (SAC) launched Case for Community Day (CFCD)--an annual campus-wide afternoon of service in the fall, where CWRU students, faculty, staff and alumni engaged in volunteer projects to support the local community and nonprofit organizations throughout Greater University Circle and Cleveland. CFCD was a treasured university tradition that continued through 2015. In 2018, CFCD was relaunched as CWRU Community Week in an effort to expand the university's impact.
