Community Service

During the course of their education at UMSOD, our students on average donate more than 7500 hours of community service. Many UMSOD student clubs and organizations are engaged in service initiatives with community partners throughout Maryland. 

To mitigate risk associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, UMB strongly recommends that all students activities, meetings, and fundraising occur virtually 

Students are not prohibited from volunteering in-person; however, volunteer projects that do not involve in-person interaction are strongly recommended. 
There are many opportunities to volunteer virtually or by organizing drives to collect items for community partners and agencies

Process for UMSOD Student Clubs and Organizations  

UMSOD student clubs and organizations interested in organizing a community service project must complete the UMB Student Organization Event Risk Assessment form and follow the UMSOD community service protocol. UMB officials will review your request, and after obtaining approval from campus, the Office of Student Affairs will contact the organizer(s) regarding next steps for your service project. 

The University of Maryland is regularly updating its Coronavirus information page with the latest information and recommendations to promote a safe and healthy environment for the university community. For additional information, please access that information page.
