Community Service Center

Promoting Leadership, Responsibility and Understanding

Weekly Newsletter

During the academic year, the CSC sends out a newsletter every week to CLU students who have opted into our volunteer email list.  This is the best way to hear about upcoming CSC events, other service events on campus (let us know if your club is hosting one!), and any off campus opportunities that come our way.  We'll also let you know about job openings in the CSC and upcoming trips. 

Interested in joining?  Shoot us an email at and we'll add you to our list. We aim to keep our emails to once a week- keeping your inbox a little less cluttered.
