Even before the fall semester began at Bloomsburg University, members of the football team were helping local residents clean up from the recent flooding. With the semester now underway, there are many opportunities to engage with students for volunteer efforts and professional development. Businesses and non-profit organizations are invited to connect.
The Big Event is recognized for organizing thousands of students for community service projects on a Saturday each spring. However, student groups volunteer in the community throughout the year. The Center for Leadership & Engagement on campus can help connect non-profits and other groups with students for events or other efforts. Contact Keith Spencer at 570-389-3864 or email.
As students seek to develop employability skills, Professional U connects students with alumni, employers, and opportunities integrating the academic experience with professional experience in “real world” settings. Through the exploration of professional development topics and experiential learning, students build skills and confidence which prepare them for personal and professional success upon graduation. Opportunities include on campus engagement, internships, and workplace observations. Additional information with contacts can be found on this sheet.
