Service Engagement

The purpose of Lander service engagement is to provide opportunities for the Lander community to give back through meaningful service and community involvement and be a part of something greater than ourselves.


2022-2023 Service Opportunities

The Department of Student Life at Lander University believes that the involvement of students in civic engagement is essential not just in enhancing their college experience but in developing skills that can be translated into the workforce. One of our values and objectives as a department is to form students into community leaders. At Lander University, students can be involved with the community through student organizations, community events, and individual acts of service.
