One-Time Projects and Initiatives

One-Time Projects and Initiatives


One-time Projects and Initiatives provide UConn students with the perfect opportunity to get exposure to major change-makers in our local communities through supporting the missions of these impactful organizations. Student participants should expect virtual service opportunities found on our UConntact page, until we receive further notice regarding off- campus service guidelines for the Fall of 2020.

Dialogue Initiatives


We invite you to come share your perspective and learn about hot topics of today! Dialogues Initiatives provides exposure to the experiences and perspectives of people on both sides of an issue through careful education and interactive deliberation. Each of our dialogues will attempt to educate on  topical issue that affect our society. In the past we have tackled issues diverse as consent laws, child poverty, transgender identities, sexual assault on campus, homelessness, and psychological health. For more information regarding upcoming topics of discussion or how to get involved within this organization, please visit here.

Campus Wide Service Initiatives


Campus Wide Service Initiatives are large-scale events hosted in partnership with community partners, commonly known as Day of Caring, MLK Day of Service, and Give and Go. These events allow for large numbers of participants and may contain a variety of different volunteers tasks. However, as we navigate new and upcoming COVID- 19 guidelines, we currently do not have any Campus Wide events planned for the Fall of 2020. Please check back to this page or our UConntact page with any updates/ changes as Fall 2020 guidelines roll out. If we do not see you this fall, we hope to welcome everyone back in January of 2021 during MLK Day!

Community Service Days


Community Service Days (CSDs) are one-time volunteer opportunities that are coordinated in partnership with many surrounding community organizations. Typically, CSD events occur on weekends throughout the semester, all transportation provided. Event pick-ups and drop-offs occur outside of People’s United Bank on the side of the UConn Bookstore. However, with strict COVID-19 guidelines in place, we will be offering virtual service opportunities for the beginning of Fall 2020 until we receive further notice regarding off campus service. Virtual service opportunities can be found here.

If you are looking to become more involved with CSD, consider applying to be a Team Leader! Please email uconn.co.csd@gmail.com for more information! 

If you require an accommodation to participate in any Community Outreach event, please contact Jazmyn Matos at jmm10029work@uconn.edu at least five days prior to the event.
