Eastern Illinois University’s Civic Engagement and Volunteerism office is committed to ensure that all of our students understand they have the power and ability to change our world and our community for the better through volunteering.
We do this by offering meaningful service opportunities that meet a community need, make our neighbor’s days brighter, and compliment learning that is happening inside the classroom.
By being an engaged citizen and volunteering, our students are gaining leadership skills, offered a hands on opportunity to put into practice what they are learning in the classroom, are exposed to new populations, and are challenged to live their life and view the world around them with a sense of responsibility to act, and to do so with compassion. Our programs support Eastern’s mission of enhancing the learning, educational growth, and development of the whole student.

Service to Go boxes are a great fun way to bring service right to your class, department, hall, or RSO meeting. Whether you have only 15 minutes or an hour or more, we have a project to fit your needs. Last year we had over 50 requests for Service To Go boxes!

Throughout the semester, EIU offers opportunities for many of our students to work together to provide a large impact on the community through service.
