Community Partnerships | University of Portland

Community Partnerships

The Moreau Center partners with local organizations and non-profits that share similar values of service, social justice, solidarity, reflection, and commitment to community. Partnering with community organizations provides opportunities for University of Portland students to learn through community engagement. These partnerships allow students to meet community identified needs in a mutually beneficial act of service.

Campus Volunteer Coordinators (CVCs)

The Moreau Center partners with specific community organizations who host a campus volunteer coordinator each year. These student leaders serve as liaisons between these organizations and UP students to promote and arrange ongoing service.  We currently have partnerships with the following organizations:

Community Service Work Study

The Community Service Work Study (CSWS) program lets students earn a portion of their federal work study financial aid by providing services to a local non-profit organization.  We work with many local non-profits and are open to starting new partnerships.  If you are a non-profit interested in having a Community Service Work Study student, please email  Find out more about the CSWS program.
