Community Engagement & Service

CCES MLK Week 2014


Our One-Day Service Events program (ODSE) was designed to provide members of the AU community with a myriad of opportunities to connect with the diverse communities of Washington, DC. Although this program primarily focuses on the facilitation of short-term community service projects, we've made several enhancements that allow participants to experience deeper levels of community engagement during our seven sponsored ODSE events each year. 

Whether you're an AU student, alum, staff or faculty member, we hope you'll consider serving with us soon!
