Civic Engagement & Service

Service Fellows


Service Fellows provides opportunities for University of South Florida students committed to service and community engagement. Comprised of student-led committees focused on a variety of social issues, this board coordinates accessible, fun, and meaningful service events and projects for on and off campus experiences. This board also serves as a bridge in building intentional relationships between nonprofits in the community and student organizations on campus. Service Fellows affords board members leadership experiences through responsibilities that include managing event logistics, community partner relationships, and campus outreach.

Service Fellows strives to ignite students' passion for service and civic engagement.

Service Fellows develops service learning opportunities for University of South Florida students, focusing on current social issues, to positively impact the Tampa Bay community.
