Welcome! At Missouri S&T we realize that our potential to impact the community in a positive manner is very high. Students at S&T are given the opportunity to effect change in their community on campus, and the greater community beyond the institution. The Department of Student Life is committed to providing access to programming, individual partnerships and resources that allow students to build a community of engaged citizens at S&T.
The office of Volunteerism and Involvement serves as the primary point of contact for all service related efforts that are being offered to S&T students. This office works to connect students with service projects in the Rolla area, and strives to engage students in a larger community-wide conversation on active citizenship and service based leadership.
Strengthen CommunityBy being involved in programming and through using resources provided by this office, students at S&T will develop a stronger understanding of community, and how their actions impact their community on a personal, local, national and international level.
Build Bridges Through engaging with this office students will work with people, organizations, and communities that will challenge preconceived notions which will foster a greater a sense of understanding between different groups.
Empower Individuals Students who participate in activities and actively seek out relationships with community partners will learn skills that empower them to be effective change makers in communities after S&T.
Create Solutions Those who involve themselves with the Office of Volunteerism and Involvement will be prepared to identify and creatively solve problems that affect the greater community.
To effect positive change in the greater community and to teach students how to make impactful choices in their future it is important that connections are built in the Rolla community. Our community partners are a valuable asset to S&T, as they provide our students with the majority of the service opportunities that are participated in each year.
