community service & ALTERNATIVE BREAKS
The Office of Student Services assists students in engaging with their local, regional, national and global communities through service. One of the ways the Office of Student Services facilitates community service is by providing students with a wide range of opportunities for professional and life experience, often demonstrated through service to their communities.
Volunteering is a great way to inspire, recognize and encourage people to seek out imaginative ways to engage with surrounding communities. In an effort to give back to our local communities, NEOMED hosts three services days each year.
- Make A Difference Day – Saturday in October
- MLK Day of Service – Monday in January (MLK Day)
- NEOMED Spring Day of Service – Saturday in May
Alternative Spring Breaks
NEOMED Alternative Spring Breaks are experiences for our students to learn about social justice issues within our society, by engaging in active service and being involved in meaningful discussions and reflection that ultimately help individuals become catalysts for social change.
