Special Undergraduate Academic and Co-Curricular Programs
Rockhurst University inspires in its students a commitment to service to the larger community. The Center for Service Learning fosters this commitment through campus-wide community service projects, assistance with individual volunteer opportunities, and servicelearning projects designed with faculty to complement academic courses.
The Center organizes the Finucane Service Project during Orientation Week (for incoming students). The Center sponsors a variety of service projects in which students may participate throughout their academic career. All students are strongly encouraged to participate in community service during their time at Rockhurst.
Upon completion of volunteer projects and service-learning activities, students submit a form with a record of the project to the Center for Service Learning. Students’ service hours with nonprofit agencies are recorded on a service transcript, which is available to the student upon request.
The Center for Service Learning is located in Van Ackeren Hall, Rooms 208/210, telephone 816-501-4545 or 816-501-4642.
