Many students want to volunteer in Southeast Texas
but don't know how to get started. We can help!

Civic Engagement is an integral part of life at Lamar University. The principles of service, ethics, leadership, and commitment guide our academic offerings, aided in part by a campus-wide Community Service initiative. The Office of Civic Engagement advocates meaningful service opportunities and personal growth.
