 Student Involvement

 Shockers Give Back

Student Involvement recognizes the power of a helping hand and strives to coordinate the needs of the community with Wichita State University students who are interested in volunteering. We seek to engage students in opportunities within the community that will support their efforts to be productive citizens.

This is new area within Student Involvement and is currently under development. We are working hard to plan opportunities for students that fit into the Foundation of Civic Engagement:

  • Community Service
  • Deliberate Dialogue
  • Community Partnerships
  • Activism
  • Philanthropy
  • Service-Learning

"An education that teaches you to understand something about the world has done only half of the assignment. The other half is to teach you to do something about making the world a better place." -- Johnnetta Cole
