Civic Engagement

Keystone College creates remarkable opportunities for civic-based projects, service-learning, and intercultural learning experiences that benefit our students and the greater community.

Be a part of something bigger than yourself.

The opportunity to serve others, in many ways, is the essence of a Keystone College education. By participating in service projects, you will develop the capacity to meet social challenges, solve problems, and make a positive difference in the world in which you live.

With over 26,000 hours of service, Keystone students, alumni, faculty, and staff have dedicated themselves to serving others. We help provide coordinated opportunities to engage in service to the community, both locally and globally.

Receive Credit for Giving Back

Keystone believes so strongly in civic engagement and community service that every student completes a service learning course as a credit towards graduation.

“A service project that I really enjoyed was sewing sleeping bags for a homeless shelter.”
