The Center for Volunteer Programs and Service Learning, located in 119 Natali Student Center, serves as a catalyst for students to connect with, build and sustain meaningful service initiatives in partnership with communities surrounding Cal U. Students enhance their learning and leadership development by engaging in educationally purposeful and diverse co-curricular experiences through volunteer opportunities. Student service hours are tracked through a volunteer management system to document students’ volunteer experiences both on and off campus.
Cal U Cupboard
The Center also operates the Cal U Cupboard, a food pantry for students experiencing food insecurity. The Cal U Cupboard assists our students by providing food, academic supplies and personal hygiene items, so they can continue on the path toward graduation. Operated by Cal U’s Center for Volunteer Programs and Service Learning and supported by our generous donors, the campus-based food pantry helps to meet students’ basic needs.
