DU Service & Change (DUSC) is a student organization engaging the DU community in diverse opportunities that facilitate positive change for the greater public good.
DUSC has four separate committees leading different projects:
- Project Action – Weekly volunteer opportunities in the community meant to expose members to a variety of social justice issues. Project Action explores projects meant to start conversations of why these issues exist and the short-term relief volunteering can provide.
- Project Depth – Long term and committed projects where volunteers involved discuss and learn about public issues while exploring their root causes and looking for better solutions.
- Project Immersion – Service projects that educate volunteers and meet critical community needs for an extended period of time where members are immersed in the community.
- Project Volunteer – One day events each quarter where University of Denver students, faculty, and staff can engage in volunteer activities throughout the Denver community.
In addition to these committees, DUSC also organize drives and fundraisers.
Join us at our monthly meetings in Driscoll
South, Suite 18, next to the CCESL office (beneath the DU Bookstore).
