Student Service

At the core of Emmanuel's mission is a focus on social justice. Students are challenged to become contributing members of the local community and the global society. From annual new student days of service and service-learning courses to Alternative Spring Break and the hours volunteered by student clubs and athletic teams, our students truly embrace this challenge and recognize the importance of giving back.

Each year, move than 80 percent of our student body participates in volunteer activities, resulting in more than 50,000 hours of service to the community. Emmanuel has been consistently placed on The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction. Community service is a vital piece of the Emmanuel College experience.

Emmanuel students have the opportunity to serve the community in a variety of ways, through the Office of Student Involvement, Mission & Ministry, service-learning academic courses and more. Students can participate in large scale days of service or on-going volunteer service at a number of agencies and institutions in the city of Boston.
