Lawrence University is committed to preparing “students for lives of achievement, responsible and meaningful citizenship, lifelong learning, and personal fulfillment.” The Volunteer and Community Service Center (VCSC)  aims to support this commitment by meeting and working with students to encourage critical thought and reflection on the purpose, responsibility, and potential for lifelong learning through service and engagement within the context of a Lawrence University education.
