Students, faculty, and staff are actively involved in the local community. Students collectively put in over 20,000 hours of service work in the community each year. Through partnerships with 35 local non-profit and community organizations, there a variety of ways for students to get involved. With on-campus philanthropic and advocacy efforts all the way through extensive community-based field experience programs. Students have a chance to get engaged with service through the First Year Week of Service, through nine community service-based student organizations, through the Community Outreach Team work-study positions, Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Alternative Spring Breaks, and more. Although there are ways in which students can get involved with the community directly through the programs of the office, many students volunteer through their Greek organization, athletic team, or other student organizations. W&J students truly are responsible citizens, and are prepared to contribute substantially to the world in which they live!
