Get Involved

The best way to make the most of your college experience is to get involved! In addition to the on-campus opportunities through clubs and organizations, University of Minnesota Crookston (UMC) students have many opportunities to get involved off campus through service-learning and community service activities too. Working with other students and a diverse group of community members with a diverse set of circumstances gives additional meaning to classroom studies and life. College is a time to be able to “check out” and volunteer with various organizations. It is an opportunity to discover what you are passionate about or what inspires you. It is an opportunity to make a difference in the world!

At UMC there are many opportunities to volunteer through annual events organized through the Office of Community Engagement such as Meet Crookston through Service, MLK Day of ServiceGlobal Youth Service Day, amongst others (see the "For Students" navigation section below). If you are a member of one of the many clubs on campus, you will be encouraged to complete at least two service projects each semester. Those of you living in the residence halls have an opportunity to volunteer with other floor members. If you are not part of a club or don’t live on campus, no worries! There are lots of opportunities for individuals to get involved too!
