This section of the webpage is intended to help persons of faith who are seeking ways to transform the world through service - or to engage in practical experiential learning that serves communities of faith.  As the students and employees at Lawrence University have experiences with various service organizations or internships, we will publish their reviews in these sections. 

If you would like to speak to someone about faith based service opportunities, please contact Linda Morgan-Clement or for more general service avenues, contact the Center for Community Engagement and Social Change
