Office of Community Engagement

TCU students, faculty and staff are involved in community service on an organizational and individual basis. The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) works to foster social responsibility and lifelong learning through community-based partnerships. OCE provides curricular and co-curricular opportunities that prepare students to be engaged citizens and global leaders working toward social justice.

Information and materials are available to guide groups and individuals in planning, implementing and reflecting upon service experiences. OCE also provides assistance in identifying appropriate community agencies for service-learning and volunteer opportunities. Students are invited to participate in structured community service programs, sign up for service-learning courses or join student service organizations. These organizations include Alpha Phi Omega, Best Buddies, GO Center, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Dream Outside the Box and TCU LEAPS. A Service Council; composed of leaders from the various organizations meets monthly to share resources, collaborate, and educate student leaders on social justice themes. Other leadership opportunities are available, ranging from assisting departmental staff with programming to becoming ambassadors to community organizations. To get involved in service, call 817.257.5557 or visit www.involved.tcu.edu.
