Community Engagement

Shanghai is rich in opportunities to engage with the local community and communities across China.

The Office of Student Life is your link to service projects of every kind, as well as educational opportunities that explore China’s rich culture, history, and commitment to change and development.

Are you ready to get yourself involved in making a difference in your community, society, country and the world?

Step outside of your familiar environment and expand your horizons. You will benefit from volunteering by building on your leadership, communication, and decision-making skills, learning about yourself, and developing academically by linking your classroom and curricular experiences.

Participating in an Alternative Break trip, teaching in local schools, visiting the elderly, and mentoring youth are just a few of the ways you can become an engaged community member committed to making a difference.
