Community Service

Community service is a longstanding tradition at DePauw with approximately three-fourths of the student body volunteering to work in a variety of organizations and agencies each year.  For this reason, President George Bush recognized DePauw's student volunteers as the 592 Daily Point of Light for the Nation in 1991.  The well known TV journalist Charles Kuralt once called the Winter Term in Service Program, through which students participate in construction and public health projects in Third World countries, "DePauw's own Peace Corps."  Volunteer activities are coordinated through the Grover L. Hartman Center for Civic Education.  In addition to Winter Term in Service projects, activities include the student-managed DePauw Community Services program, Saturday work projects, Bonner Scholars program, Alternative Spring Break and programs sponsored by individual residence units.
