UCARE inspires the belief that positive change can be made in our world and helps students make that change happen.
The Ursinus Center for Advocacy, Responsibility, and Engagement (UCARE) serves as the focal point for community service and civic engagement at Ursinus College. UCARE’s goal is to expose students from all walks of life to the needs of their communities. In the process, students begin to make connections between their classroom experiences and their society. When these connections are made, students are likely to develop into the stakeholders of our democracy. UCARE inspires the belief that positive change can be made in our world, and helps students make that change happen.
College students often feel compelled to become actively involved in the world they learn about in the classroom. Through direct service opportunities, UCARE offers a variety of ways in which students may participate in the change they wish to see. Students are also encouraged to take courses with service-learning components. Moreover, students can also pursue a minor in Peace and Social Justice Studies.
