The Center for Service supports the Mount community and our community partners in educating students for just and compassionate engagement with the world through service to God and others. The Center helps faculty and staff to integrate service in ways that support student learning in four program areas: support for service-learning, service-oriented research, community-based learning co-curriculars, and building a culture of service.

The Coordinator provides administrative and logistical support for service-learning curriculars and co-curriculars, coordinates the Special Olympics Fall Fest and spring Immersion Trips, and manages the Mount Table food pantry.
