Community Service Learning

Service-Based Clubs

These student organizations are dedicated to providing service to the community. It is easy to get involved. Just email the group that sparks your interest, look for us at the Activities Fair each semester, or show up at our club meetings posted on the university's master calendar. If you are a part of a student organization that is active in service, email service@willamette.edu and we will add your information to the list.

Visit the Student Organization Website for more information on the following service-based student orgs.
