Terps For Change

Mission Statement:

Terps for Change is committed to connecting the university with the local community through sustained, collaborative, and meaningful community service-learning. By exploring the root causes through critical reflection and meaningful dialogue, we seek to better understand the systemic complexities of social issues and the action steps we can take to address them.

Terps for Change volunteers are required to make a minimum commitment of one academic semester. Students are expected to volunteer at least 2-3 hours per week. Additionally, student volunteers are expected to attend and actively engage in our monthly dialogue events that focus on critical reflection and deeper understanding of service-learning and movement towards social change.
