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.  

Please email if you'd like to reserve an event for your organization, if you have any questions, or for more information!

Dialogue Initiatives

We invite you to come share your perspective and learn about hot topics of today! Dialogue 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 issues that affect our society. In the past we have tackled issues such as consent laws, child poverty, transgender identities, sexual assault on campus, homelessness, and psychological health.
