University of Scranton Plans Fair for Non-profit Organizations Seeking Volunteers
The University of Scranton’s Community Outreach Office will hold its annual fair for local non-profit organizations in need of volunteers on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
Each year more than 2,800 University of Scranton students perform well over 170,000 service hours, much of it through local organizations. The Community Outreach Office informs students and student clubs interested in service projects of volunteer opportunities that exist at local organizations.
The University of Scranton has been nationally recognized for its service efforts. Scranton ranked 14th in the nation among the top among 50 service-oriented colleges in the master’s level category listed in the September/October issue of Washington Monthly. Scranton is among just 110 colleges in the nation earning the highly selective Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Community Engagement Classification for both Curricular Engagement (the connection of teaching, learning and scholarship to community) and Outreach and Partnership (the extent of focus of institutional resources on community collaboration).
For more information or to register your non-profit organization for the fair, please call 941-7429 by Friday, Sept. 10, 2010.
