VOLUNTEER IN THE COMMUNITY
The Office of the Provost is actively working with campus and community partners to identify environmental engagement opportunities for staff. More information will be posted here when available. If you or your unit offer an environmental engagement opportunity that you would like to feature here, let us know.
The Office of Sustainability maintains a list of organizations that may be of interest, and current opportunities through the Office of Civic Engagement include:
Neighborhood Schools Program
The Neighborhood Schools Program (NSP) is one of the University of Chicago’s longest-standing community outreach programs. Founded in 1976 as an effort to create pathways of engagement between the University and the local schools, our program has grown over the years to partner with 50 sites on Chicago’s South Side and involves over 350 student employees and volunteers engaging with 4,000 local students each year. If you would like to discuss new ideas or potential partnerships, email Brandi Snodgrass, Director of Neighborhood School Partnerships at firstname.lastname@example.org.
