Community Service Opportunities
Catholic Campus Ministry is a community of men and women who possess varying gifts and talents. They understand that "to those who have been given much, much is expected"
We believe that we are made in the image of the Creator and acknowledge that we must become "men and women for others", grow in the ability to love, be compassionate and to do justice.
The core values which are rooted in the Judeo/Christian tradition proclaim that community service is an essential part of the education of the whole person and the fulfillment of the goals and objectives of CCM.
Furthermore, experience and training in community service best prepares each participant for the leadership of others wherever he/she finds him/herself in the 21st century, and for playing a positive role in the gradual transformation of the world.
Statudents are encouraged to volunteer for community srevice by contacting CCM(896-0394) or the community service coordinator at the Multicultrual Center for opportunities to serve.
