Be successful. Make a difference.

Service is an integral part of the Maryville College experience and a major component of the College’s Statement of Purpose. Offering a variety of service opportunities provides students with a unique connection to our local, national, and global communities. Such a focus equips students with a vital perspective of civic engagement, community partnership, social responsibility, and many other life skills that will remain valuable after leaving Maryville College.

Maryville College offers a variety of ways in which students can participate in volunteer service programs. Though some service opportunities come in the form of scholarship commitments or service-learning course responsibilities, the office of volunteer service offers support to any student interested in being a community volunteer. Most Maryville College students are actively engaged in some form of volunteer service, and this proud reality reinforces the College's goal of shaping student life inside and outside of the classroom, both on and off campus.

Please let us know how we can help you find a program that fulfills your volunteer interests.
