Looking for ways you and your staff can make a difference and give back to the community?  Below is a list of a few of University Life’s Signature Service Projects.  If you are interested in working with one of the organizations below, please feel free to connect them directly to coordinate something that meets your department’s needs.  Once you confirm a project, the Community Building and Service Committee would love to “showcase your service” on our “UL Gives Back Spotlight” page.  To share your story, please contact Lisa Snyder at lsnyder2@gmu.edu.
