Civic Engagement


Our undergraduates spend over 50,000 hours each year in the Rochester community participating in service and philanthropic activities. Interest in community service is high and has become a distinctive part of student life at Rochester. Nearly half of undergraduates at Rochester are regularly involved in community service activities. Civic engagement opportunities span from when students first arrive on campus (through Wilson Day) to after they graduate (through Rochester Youth Year), and include student-led organizations focusing on both community service and politics, as well as programs coordinated by the center.
