Civic Engagement and Personal Development

I am Serving . . . I am Lycoming

Every day, Lycoming students impact the world in profound and meaningful ways. The Office of Civic Engagement and Personal Development seeks to provide the foundation for students to expand their worldview, become engaged citizens, and lead the next generation. From service opportunities aligned to your specific interests to programming that allows you to explore or sharpen your personal faith, Lycoming strives to help you enhance your professional growth and personal fulfillment. The office acts as a liaison and facilitator between local agencies and the campus community.
