Community Service



Preparing for a Life of Service to Others

The mission of LVC's Office of Community Service and Volunteerism is to prepare students for a life of service to others.  We seek to fulfill this mission by (1) providing LVC students with incentives for service and (2) organizing opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to serve together.

Certainly, service is its own reward. Additionally, LVC provides encouragement by granting three community service awards--bronze, silver, and gold--which may be included in one's personal profile on LVC's Job Center. Let prospective employers know that you are someone who cares about the community!

Should you need help planning a community service project, feel free to contact me at fullmer@lvc.edu or (717) 867-6135.
