UMD Community Involvement Fair Offers Students Numerous Options

The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) will host its Community Involvement Fair, sponsored by UMD's Office of Civic Engagement (OCE), on Wed., Sept. 18, between 9 am–2 pm in the Kirby Ballroom. This event is free and open to the public.

The Community Involvement Fair features over 40 organizations that partner with UMD and offer volunteer and community-based learning opportunities within the Duluth community. Opportunities are available in such areas as education, environmental sustainability, health care, animal welfare, youth, social justice, and the arts.

Students are encouraged to volunteer as a way to get more involved in the community, add experiences to their resumes, and gain knowledge about organizations and the professional world.

About the Office of Civic Engagement
The OCE creates actively engaged life-long citizens. It has established over 70 community partnerships with local organizations and mobilizes approximately 2,000 students a year. The students contribute more than 30,000 hours of service to the community annually. The OCE assists UMD faculty in incorporating community-based learning in courses, and they support departments and groups involved in community based learning.
