Here are some of the volunteer and service programs that enhance the health, skills, and well-being of all our neighbors:
- The Office of Civic Engagement is the University’s response to its commitment to the City of Chicago by extending education, collaborating on research, spurring innovation, and anchoring neighborhoods.
- The University Community Service Center connects students, faculty, staff, and residents with volunteer opportunities at organizations throughout the city.
- The University of Chicago Medicine offers health screenings at neighborhood events and runs several free clinics in the community. Within the medical center, community and campus volunteers visit patients, deliver books and magazines, assist families, and more.
- The Neighborhood Schools Program places several hundred University students into classrooms for one-on-one tutoring and teacher support.
- At the Edwin F. Mandel Legal Aid Clinic, law students provide free legal services.
- Programs in the School of Social Service Administration and The University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy prepare students for lifelong engagement and service to the community.
Whether you’re a member of the University community or a valued neighbor, we invite you to get involved and make a difference. Find a volunteer opportunity by filling out a volunteer interest form, and a staff member will reach out to you to help you make the connection.
