Office for Community Service and Engagement

INTRODUCTION: A department within the Student Success Division, The Office for Community Service and Engagement serves in partnership with Lincoln University’s High Impact Co-Curricular Student Engagement Unit.

MISSION:  Through Lincoln University’s strong commitment to student success, The Office for Community Service and Engagement is designed for Lincoln students to use volunteer service coupled with diverse, real-world experiences, to cultivate skills towards their pursuit of a professional and successful career, all while strengthening the community around them.

GOALS:  Students will utilize their gifts, talents and abilities to develop additional skills within an academic discipline or per an individual service interest, partnering directly with community leaders, organizations, alumni, and/or local residents, with the goal of creating an even better world. 

The Office for Community Service and Engagement will provide students and also invested stakeholders, rewarding campus and community partnership programs.  Whether through community service, individual volunteerism, service learning, or community-based research, students will gain:

  • professional skills that will aid in post graduate and career preparation,
  • transformational leadership tools that will address societal issues and problem solving opportunities,
  • an appreciation for social accountability, diversity and global responsiveness.

Through a commitment of at least 25-75 service hours per semester students will continue to advance Lincoln’s legacy by embarking upon meaningful, hands-on community engagement, professional development and life-long service learning programs.
