Community Service and Civic Engagement
The Regula Center constantly strives to provide resources for students, faculty and campus organizations looking to become more engaged in the Alliance community. Through working with more than 80 partners in our area, we are able to create mutually beneficial collaborations on a regular basis.
Many current public officials have cited community involvement as a stepping stone to where they are today while a vast number of other professions also look for service backgrounds when hiring new employees. This paired with Mount Union’s mission to provide students with an education that prepares them for “fulfilling lives, meaningful work and responsible citizenship” has led the Regula Center to give students ongoing opportunities.
Some of the Center’s offerings include:
- Trick or Treat for Canned Goods
- Community-wide Thanksgiving Dinner
- Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
- Regula Breakfasts
- Up Close and Personal
- Dowling Mentor Program
- Sophomore Service Honorary
- Regula Scholars
The Center is always recruiting volunteers for a wide range of other events in the community and can provide information and resources to anyone interested.
Other community service options on campus include:
- Alternative Spring Break Trips with Alpha Phi Omega, Dr. Kramer and the Department of Education
- Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity – Contact Kate Carnell for more information
