Community Service & Outreach

Our Community Service & Outreach programs change lives by enhancing civic engagement competency through high impact service-learning opportunities and community involvement.

We provide opportunities for UNA students to recognize their civic potential and take initiative to develop it. Students enrich and enhance their education experience through active, engaged service.

The sixth annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Day will take place from 10:00am-12:00pm on Monday, January 20, 2020 in the Guillot University Center on UNA's campus. 

Students and members of the community will have the opportunity to help out their local food pantries by packaging food in an interactive and exciting environment. The first 300 volunteers will receive a free t-shirt for participating. It will be, "A Day On, Not A Day Off" and a great way to honor and remember Dr. King.
