Service Opportunities

DUSC Logo

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 six separate committees leading different projects:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Project Volunteer – One day events each quarter where University of Denver students, faculty, and staff can engage in volunteer activities throughout the Denver community.
  4. Project Connect - Leads drives and fundraisers throughout each quarter that promote awareness and help a specific cause through monetary and item donations. 
  5. Project Immersion - Intensive service that addresses and meets critical community needs in areas like public safety, health, disaster service, environmental stewardship, etc. 
  6. Project Accelerate - Project support for aspiring DUSC student leadership, awareness, and support for a specific cause.
