Each year, thousands of students start at the Mary Ellen Brandell Volunteer Center​ to join efforts ranging from helping the elderly to aiding in hurricane relief. Our community of doers gives thousands of hours of volunteer service each year to the surrounding areas, the state and the nation.

  • Alternative Breaks are a great way to help communities in need during holiday breaks, summer vacation or between semesters.
  • The CMU Student Food Pantry provides students experiencing food insecurity support when they need a little extra help.
  • The Financial Wellness Collaborative helps students with budgets, understanding credit usage and financial planning for a brighter future.
