Student Life at BW

Service & Leadership

At Baldwin Wallace, you can participate in thoughtfully organized service experiences that meet community needs and help foster civic responsibility. You can serve locally but also throughout the United States and even abroad. You can develop leadership skills as well as learn more about yourself. What could be more important than that?

Tradition of Service

Ready to learn how to use your BW education to make a difference? The David & Frances Brain Center for Community Engagement (formerly the Office of Community Outreach) upholds the University's mission of empowering students to become contributing, compassionate citizens of an increasingly global society. The Brain Center offers a variety of ways for students to get involved and fulfill experiential learning requirements by serving at the local, national and international levels. Opportunities include one-time projects, weekly service, alternative breaks, international service, leadership positions and more.
