What is Student United Way?

Student United Way is a student-run community change group focused on advancing the common good through giving, advocating, and volunteering both on campus and in the community.  Students collaborate year-round on issues important to their neighbors while raising awareness and building lasting leadership skills.

How does Student United Way work?

A core group of Student Officers lead the effort to create powerful change on campus, and in our community.  Officers work to raise awareness of critical community needs and work to postively effect them through events, activities, and student recruitment.  Officers also plan and organize fundraising efforts to give back to the community and connect students to additional volunteer and internship opportunities.

Why should I join?

Student United Way was created to unite students, staff, and faculty around pressing local issues to advance the common good for all.

Students benefit by:

  • Developing leadership skills.  Student United Way offers a multitude of opportunities to get involved with issues that matter most.  Students work in collaboration with local agencies on important issues, making an impact through project management, communication, and passion.
