The Office of Community Services works to increase engaged citizenship, sustainable community partnerships and responsibility by helping students, community members, faculty and staff build connections, explore the complexity of identity and values and identify community needs. This occurs in reciprocal relationships that foster an understanding of one’s strengths, values and contributions to the community.

Enhancing your experience at Dickinson College can occur by making a contribution to the Carlisle Community and beyond.  There are many ways to engage the community at Dickinson which include: service learning, ALLARM, community studies, internships and volunteering.

If you are interested in volunteering for the local community, visit the Office of Community Service at Dickinson College. Over 200 students volunteer in the Carlisle community weekly and another 100+ get involved in a service trip each year. In addition, over 100 students participate in a Day of Service event throughout the year. In 2011-2012 over 39,000 hours of volunteer community service were donated by Dickinson students to the Carlisle community.

This office assists students, community members, faculty and staff to build connections, explore complexity of identity and values, and identify community needs. Through our programs we aim to foster engaged citizenship, support sustainable community partnerships,and increase responsibility and accountability.
