UNH has several community service programs that promote active citizenship in the campus and our community. Our vision is that all UNH graduates will leave campus as engaged citizens with the skills and intention to be active in strengthening their communities. On April 21, 2017 the UNH Office of Community Service & Learning and the Sustainability Institute held the biggest service event in UNH history, the UNH Earth Day of Service. Several students volunteered at one or more of our many service opportunities that took place either on campus, in the Durham community or neighboring towns. Just a few examples of the organized volunteer projects included: Campus clean up, College Woods clean up, Organizing food baskets at the Waysmeet center, painting a mural at the Dover Teen Center and many more.
While the UNH Earth Day of Service was the biggest community service event, the Office of Community Service and Learning provides students with a slew of volunteer opportunities throughout the school year. UNH Serves event and the MLK Day of Service are two other big service events where UNH Students volunteered in our community. The Office of Community Service and Learning also provides students with weekly updates of service opportunities. To learn more, visit http://www.unh.edu/uac/community-service.
