Buck-I-SERV is a weeklong, substance-free program centered on community service and civic engagement, and held during the university’s breaks. Buck-I-SERV is a program planned through the Office of Student Life and supported in part by the Student Activity Fee. The mission of Buck-I-SERV is to provide students with a challenging and fun opportunity to lead and learn through direct service experiences. Students will learn the importance of reflection, social justice, and civic engagement while gaining new perspectives through working in diverse environments. They will also be meeting community needs, building on community assets, and bringing their experiences back to campus. Students will also be able to create new and lasting friendships by participating in a Buck-I-SERV trip over winter, spring, or summer break.
