Over 42,000 involvement hours were recorded by Ferris State students during the 2019 - 2020 academic year.

  • It is a good way to impact your community, discover career options, boost your resume, and make connections with people that can help you during your college education.

    Volunteering - spend unpaid time helping with a community need.  Help at the food pantry, animal shelter, domestic violence shelter.

    Fundraising - collect money that is given to a non-profit local, national, or global agency to further their mission.

    Donation of Goods - collection of (but not limited to) food, clothing, toys for non-profit agencies to further their mission.

    Academic Service Learning - a variety of academic courses will give students the opportunity to use their classroom knowledge while volunteering.  

     Volunteering is yet another way to gain valuable skills today's employers are looking for!

  • There are a variety of opportunities on campus and in the local community at anytime of year.   Opportunities are currently sent out to Bulldog News every Friday or contact the CLACS office to get a listing.
