Civic Engagement

Become a Buccaneer Volunteer!

Civic Engagement is an opportunity for students, staff and alumni to engage in local community-based projects. Opportunities are available to help foster an individual’s understanding and appreciation of the challenges members of our communities encounter on a daily basis. It is the hope that individuals will return from any volunteer experience with a deeper understanding of volunteerism, Civic Engagement, activism and a great appreciation for diverse populations.
