Civic and Community Engagement

Civic and Community Engagement leads UNH students into the world to serve. Our goals are to meet community needs beyond the campus, to empower students to lead change in their communities, and to promote active citizenship in a diverse democracy.

Get Involved & Give Back!

Our vision is threefold: that UNH will attract and retain service-minded students; that UNH will serve as an asset to the surrounding communities; and that all UNH students will graduate as engaged citizens with the skills and intention to be active in strengthening their communities.

UNH Serves

UNH Serves is UNH's online portal for community service efforts. Students can search for volunteer opportunities, log service hours, share achievements on LinkedIn, and more.

The phrase "UNH Serves" has been used for many years to describe student and alumni volunteer work in communities here in the Seacoast and throughout the country. We are proud to build on that legacy with this new online portal, launched Spring 2022! Contact Megan with any questions.
