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!



We sincerely hope our students participate in meaningful short-term service opportunities that inspire them to deepen their engagement with vulnerable communities. Check out EngageNet for some ongoing service opportunities for committed students.
