Center for Service  

Our Mission

MCLA has robust and dynamic civic learning and community service programming. These high impact experiences enrich academics, strengthen professional development, and position the participant to be a leader on and off campus, as well as provide the competencies for effective participation in civic and democratic life. 

MCLA's commitment to civic engagement and community building is reflected in the over 90,000 hours that MCLA students devoted to community service and service learning during the last five academic years.
