Highlanders Helping Out
Service means not only volunteering on campus, but also pitching in and helping out in the communities surrounding UC Riverside. Recent community service events include Heart Pillows for Heart Patients, the Suicide
Awareness Walk and Unity in R' Community which encouraged students to vote.
Our office works with various local community members to offer several kinds of volunteer
projects. We also work with student organizations to help promote and plan events. In addition to the tremendous benefits and improvements
to our neighborhoods, community service lets students engage in meaningful problem
solving, gain valuable work experience, foster civic responsibility and enhance their
educational experience by putting academic theory into practice.
