Volunteerism & Civic Engagement

Join our campus-wide campaign to make positive changes in our community by declaring your DOT today!  Think of one small change you can make in your life or one new habit or practice you can develop that will help improve the world around you.  We want to show that small changes can make a difference!  We have buttons and door signs to declare your DOT to the world and show others how you are making a positive difference in our community!

Community Partners

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. Follow the Community Partners link here to learn more about those organizations that support service in the Rolla community.
