The Office of Active Citizenship and Service (OACS) exists to connect students with opportunities to engage with and learn from communities through meaningful service, capacity-building, and civic participation locally, nationally, and globally. Utilizing frameworks of social justice education, critical service-learning, and human-centered design, OACS facilitates an educational experience that prepares students to identify and confront systems of oppression and to work alongside communities to establish creative, just, and lasting social change.
This is succinctly reflected in the OACS motto:
EXPLORE. ACT. REFLECT.
