Community Engagement Awards and Recognition

Our students have discovered that learning goes beyond the classroom and community service is an important part of the college experience. UMC students regularly volunteer over 10,000 hours per year in addition to another 10,000 through academic service learning. Each spring the Service Learning office recognizes students, clubs, faculty, and community partners for their outstanding work in making UMC, Crookston, and the world a better place.
