Days of service support and cultivate a spirit of engagement and service on campus and in the community. They also can provide you an opportunity to explore what potential ways you can use your interests or skills to make a positive impact in our community. Choose from our two designated days of service—Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Earth Day. By participating in these nationally-recognized days of service, alongside other Ducks, you will be a part of a larger-scale effort by hundreds of thousands of students across the nation to affect positive change and serve others in our country and our communities. Join us on these community action days as we serve and lead together.
Upcoming Days of Service
Are you a University of Oregon student interested in developing your leadership capacity through community action?

As a cohort, students will strengthen their group facilitation skills by leading community action projects during the Days of Service; develop their knowledge about socially responsible leadership through regular cohort learning activities; and build meaningful relationships with the campus and Eugene-Springfield communities.
