Volunteer and Service Learning Center
The Volunteer and Service Learning Center at UCO provides diverse opportunities for students to perform meaningful service in the Edmond and Oklahoma City communities. The Center acts as a partner and resource for students, faculty and community members in developing and implementing volunteer and service learning projects. These efforts promote civic engagement by instilling a commitment to public life through communities of practice.
*The UCO Central Pantry is opened for students, faculty and staff members who need some assistance with food at this time.*
