Serving Our Campus

Carolinians care for one another. That's a key tenet of the Carolinian Creed. We believe giving back should be at the heart of any experience, and it starts on campus. Student organizations, university departments, academic units, service-learning classes and campus partners contribute to both university- and student-led initiatives.

Serving Our State

By emphasizing hands-on tasks that address real-world concerns, service learning is a critical component of the curriculum at UofSC. It also adds to classroom experiences by raising questions and providing opportunities to discuss these concerns in depth. In 2013-2014, 87 courses in 22 departments provided service-learning opportunities, including the second annual CreateAthon@USC, organized by the School of Journalism and Mass Communications.

Serving Our Nation

The impact of service at UofSC reaches beyond South Carolina. By offering community service programs that start both within and beyond the classroom, we prepare students for a lifetime of community leadership and responsible citizenry. The Alternative Breaks program includes community service-learning trips during the university's fall, winter and spring breaks. Student-led teams travel locally and nationally, and they gain new perspectives on social issues while meeting community needs.
