Get Involved

Wesleyan University’s Office for Community Service (OCS) is committed to engaging and learning with others to build and strengthen our shared community by providing opportunities for Wesleyan students to volunteer their time and talent with student-run service programs, Middletown community agencies and through work-study positions in our office.

Before getting involved in any community service or civic engagement, we ask that all students review the Cardinal Community Commitment.
