Community Service

The Center for Service & Civic Engagement (CSCE) was established in the fall of 2007 to further enhance the wide variety of service opportunities on and off campus available to students, faculty, and staff. The Service-Learning program was founded in the fall of 1993 to promote ways for main campus students to perform meaningful service to their communities and to society, while engaging in reflection and/or study that relates to their academic discipline. The purpose of the Center for Service and Civic Engagement is:

  1. To promote and coordinate community service and civic engagement activities for Wilmington College students, faculty, and staff.
  2. To assist selected community social service agencies with the development and enhancement of volunteer and service-learning opportunities.
  3. To promote and assist faculty in the integration of service into the curriculum.
  4. To develop student, faculty, and staff incentives for service involvement.
  5. To promote, recruit and select participants, design and facilitate the Community Service Scholarship Program and the Midwest Campus Compact Citizen Scholars Program (M3C).

Volunteers serve in a variety of agencies including Cape May Retirement Community and The Clinton County Homeless Shelter. Service projects include: Adopt-A-Highway, Habitat for Humanity, the Athenian Tutoring Program, Clinton County Youth Council, Adopt-A-Grandparent, E.T.C. (Educational Theatre Company), Sugartree Ministries, Clinton County United Way, College Club, Wilmington Area Humane Society and Ohio Reads.
