Office of Civic Life


The Office of Civic Life (formerly the Office of Volunteer Programs) cultivates community partnerships that are designed to give students multiple entries to explore pathways to community involvement, global awareness, and civic responsibility. We play a vital role in shaping the development of Illinois students through creation and implementation of intentional co-curricular and curricular programs, professional development activities, service education, and reflection. Civic Life will enable students to realize, discuss, and address critical, societal issues and gain the knowledge and capacity to be lifelong agents of change worldwide.
