In celebration of the university’s 125th anniversary, faculty, staff and students are invited to help OLLU complete a goal of 125,000 service hours by May 2021 with a pledge for “Our 125th Service Legacy.”

To honor the university’s founders, the Congregation of Divine Providence, OLLU Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Lourdes Alvarez, PhD, announced at convocation a goal to complete service hours that would benefit 125 nonprofits within the community. 

Volunteer service can be anything from helping a nonprofit organization to teaching religious education classes to helping at a child’s school. Direct service, and even philanthropy from faculty and staff, will count toward the goal.

The Center for Service-Learning and Volunteerism encourages those who wish to participate to click on this link and pledge service hours for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The deadline to submit pledges is Oct. 30. Instructions on how to track service hours will be provided. For questions, contact the Center for Service-Learning and Volunteerism office at 210-431-3990 or CSLV@ollusa.edu .
