The Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement enhances the student experience through the development of local community engagement programs, leadership development opportunities, service trips, and more. See more information about our programs below:
Beacon Voyages for Service: This unique program allows students to attend service trips in various parts of the country during school breaks.
The Campus Kitchen at UMass Boston: Part of the national organization The Campus Kitchens Project, the Campus Kitchens at UMass Boston (CKUMB) is a student-powered hunger relief initiative. CKUMB engages students, staff and faculty in recovering, preparing and delivering food to local agencies for low-income youth.
