DEPARTMENT OF STUDENT AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

GIVING BACK MEETING NEEDS

12

Serving campus and community The Office of Civic Engagement fosters active citizenship by offering a range of activities and programs that develop personal and social responsibility within the members of our University community by addressing societal needs and social justice issues through service and democratic engagement. Through national service, volunteerism and service-learning opportunities, we are able to expand the ability of volunteers to address ongoing and emerging local and global problems, such as poverty, hunger, community building, education and environmental conservation. If you would like to make a difference by helping meet these, or any other community needs, contact our office at 301.687.4210 or pobrien@frostburg.edu.

Best Buddies Program

Colleges Against Cancer

Best Buddies pairs people with intellectual disabilities in one-on-one friendships with college students. “Without friends and family, we are alone.” By becoming a college buddy, you will not only befriend someone with a developmental disability, but you will also learn about yourself in the process.

Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty and staff dedicated to eliminating cancer by working to implement the programs and mission of the American Cancer Society. With hundreds of chapters nationwide, CAC is showing the world that young people care and want to make a difference.
