Mission and History

The Community Service Center (CSC) is Boston University’s welcoming space for service, leadership, education, and reflection initiated by students in solidarity with our neighbors and community partners. Together, we aim to:

  • provide the Boston University community with opportunities to address and improve the critical concerns of Greater Boston,

  • serve as a vehicle for personal growth and leadership,
  • encourage students to be active and responsible citizensĀ in neighboring communities,
  • broaden the scope of the educational experience through service and reflection,
  • and serve Greater Boston in a meaningful and mutually beneficial way.
