Each year, CUA graduates go on to give their time, life, and most importantly their love to those who are in need. Students commit 1-2 years of volunteer service in various cities across the country and in the world. Please read some stories from our alumni who have shared their experiences.
The Campus Ministry Office hosts the annual Long Term Service Fair in addition to various workshops throughout the year. The Fair has had over 50 service (domestic and international) organizations represented! Students who are interested in learning more about long-term service are encouraged to attend these events or are welcome to visit the Campus Ministry Office to explore their options.
