Community Service

Community service/service learning is an integral part of the Friends University educational and extracurricular experience. The Office of Community and Residential Development offers several programs/initiatives for students interested in giving their time and talents to local, regional, national and even international causes/organizations.

Mission/Purpose
The Office of Community and Residential Development exists within the Division of Student Affairs at Friends University. We support the overall mission of the University and the Division by providing opportunities for exploration and growth in areas such as diversity, civic engagement, experiential learning and servant leadership. We are genuinely interested in helping students succeed in all areas of the college experience.  

Salvation Army Service Day
Each year since 1992, Friends University staff, faculty, and student groups join together to serve at the Salvation Army, as part of their Angel Tree Project. The University assists the charity group with donation pick-ups, sorting gifts, assembling bikes, and decoration the facility for the families.
