Community Service can be an essential part of the university experience. Engaging in the community in which you learn can have very meaningful impact on your student’s academics, as well as their social life. Working in the community allows students to make connections that can last a lifetime. Here at Kettering University, we offer opportunities for student to become civically engaged with the Flint community through numerous opportunities

The Student Civic Engagement Center (SCEC), located on the first floor of the Academic Building, serves as the home to student service organizations such as Real Service and Engineers without Borders. The center provides organizations and their members the space to store equipment, host meetings, and collaborate on how best to serve their interest area. The student groups that operate out this office plan and implement events such as “Relay for Life,” an American Cancer Society fundraiser, and “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,” part of an international march to raise awareness about the serious causes, effects and remedies for sexualized violence.

“Service Saturdays” offer students the opportunity to volunteer within the Flint community.  Events, such as neighborhood clean-ups and beautification campaigns, bring together students, faculty, staff, and neighbors in a collaborative community effort.  Students may also volunteer to work on community service projects hosted by non-profits around Flint and the region.  Our website lists up-to-date opportunities.
