Community Service

Assumption will challenge you to discover your gifts and talents and in return use those gifts to make a positive difference in the world. 

How Will You Impact the Community?

Assumption students collectively volunteer more than 100,000 hours per year in support of the Worcester community. At the heart of the College's mission is a call to not only form graduates known for critical intelligence but to instill in them the altruistic values of thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service. 

As a Catholic College, Assumption holds strong to its beliefs, to its traditions and values. At the core of those is the idea that there is no better use of our time, indeed, no better use of a life, than helping others. This call to serve is one of the core principles guiding our philosophy of education and what we think a life of meaning entails. 

The desire to help those in need is a vital element informing the mission of a number of student organizations such as Campus Ministry, the Student Government Association, the Reach Out Center and Assumption Athletics. Be it through assisting the elderly with free tax preparation, interning at a local nonprofit, or shoveling snow from fire hydrants to help keep a neighborhood safe, Assumption students rise to the  challenge of extending a helping hand to the city they are proud to call home for four years.
