Students helping build walls.

When Mount students use their time and talents for the common good, they are able to develop new civic skills and impact the Greater Cincinnati region in significant ways. This year alone, over 150 students completed service learning experiences of at least 30 hours or more with over 51 unique community partners, totaling 4,620 hours-served, or $99,145.20-worth of in-kind service to the community.

Students also spent hundreds of hours of their free time volunteering with student clubs like Impact Cincinnati and Habitat for Humanity, which provided them the opportunity to become acquainted with their community and to stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable. University-wide service events like the Welcome Week Day of Service and the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service also united the Mount community in service, showing that when we work together towards a common goal, great things can be accomplished.
