Service & Volunteerism

Every week there are a number of campus-wide service experiences and outreach efforts. From local volunteer opportunities to service trips, discover the different ways for you to get involved.

Service Opportunities

From working with Kids Against Hunger, to packaging boxes of food, to creating blankets for babies at local hospitals, or performing service at the House of Hope, there's no shortage of ways to get involved and make a positive impact on the community. In fact, each student club or organization performs two service projects each year. Campus Ministry also offers a wide variety of service opportunities throughout the year. If you are from a local non-profit agency who has volunteer opportunities available, please fill out the following volunteer request form and we will post the information on this website for faculty, staff, and students. Thank You!

Once you have finished a volunteer project, please fill out one of our volunteer tracking forms below so that we can keep track of all the service being done in the Cedar Rapids community by our faculty, staff, and students.

Service Trips

Service trips give you the opportunity to serve where genuine need exists in another area of our country. You'll gain first-hand perspective of the rich cultural diversity of our country and its people while building relationships with fellow volunteers and people at the service site. Service trips open your eyes and expand your horizons, giving you a new perspective to bring home.
