Community ServiceCommunity Service

At Chatham University we strive to prepare students to become environmentally responsible and globally conscious citizen leaders. For this reason, The Office of Student Activities strives to provide a range of community service opportunities that will challenge and engage our students to expand their understanding of the social issues in Pittsburgh and beyond. We encourage all students, faculty and staff to be involved in community service opportunities. There are a variety of Community Service opportunities to choose from:
  • Scheduled Community Service Activities – Regularly scheduled one–time co–curricular activities
  • Community Service Day – One day each semester entirely dedicated to community service which involves current students, faculty, staff, and alumni
  • Service Days - Once a month we will be venturing into Pittsburgh for a morning of service.  Join us for one or all events
  • Community Service Questionnaire – We know that students, faculty and staff contribute to the community in many ways besides the community service opportunities we provide.  The Community Service Questionnaire is sent once a year and helps us track the Chatham communities volunteer efforts.  This questionnair helps us obtain grants, awards, and other great opportunities.  Be sure to complete the survey annually!
