President's Volunteer Service Award

The KU Center for Service Learning is an official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.

We certify KU students who complete service that does not bear academic credit. If students are participating in service activities that earn them course credit, we encourage them to consider pursuing the Certificate in Service Learning.
