Moreau Center for Service and Justice

The Moreau Center for Service and Justice offers a variety of opportunities to help students get involved in local, national, and international service. In the days leading up to Orientation, the Service Plunge immerses first-year students in a two-day project. There are more "plunges" during fall, spring, and summer breaks. Closer to home, the Moreau Center can help you connect with an agency whose mission and outreach resonates with you.
