Community Outreach Center

Mission Statement: To encourage students to become involved with a cause they feel is important through service to the University, surrounding communities, and non-profit organizations in preparation for a life of service learning.


The Community Outreach Center, located in the McFarland Student Union 281, is the Kutztown University hub for student-focused community service and social advocacy work. The Center promotes mutually beneficial collaborations between the university and the Lehigh/Berks County communities and beyond. Through education, community connections and other resources, the Center prepares students for responsible and effective civic engagement and leadership.
