Students, staff, and faculty across Vanderbilt are invited to answer the question of how they will make a difference through various service projects and actions taking place throughout the city of Nashville. Projects are often student-led and connect with community partners to address specific needs. If you would like help in planning a project, please let OACS know. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 615-343-7878, or stop by Rand 305 anytime.
Please head to our VANDERBILT WEEKEND OF SERVICE page to register a project or sign up to participate in one.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the weekend before the Martin Luther King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The Office of Active Citizenship and Service and Dean of Students sponsor over 30 service projects in conjunction with Vanderbilt student service groups, residential houses, and other campus departments, programs, and groups in commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his inspirational spirit of service. You and your service organization, friends, and/or fellow students have the opportunity to start the year off strong by making an impact in your community in January.
