We Serve U Day

Our next We Serve U day is Wednesday, April 3, 2024.

A cornerstone of Wright State's mission is service to our communities. We Serve U Day is a day of volunteerism approved by the university administration for staff and faculty to volunteer at community non-profits without using time off.  

The We Serve U committee has arranged multiple volunteer opportunities, which include Ronald McDonald House, Crayons to Classrooms, the Humane Society, and the Wright State Admissions office.

View details about each organization's volunteer opportunities register:

The number of volunteers for each location/time slot is limited, so availability is given on a first come, first served basis. Two shifts are available at most organizations to allow everyone the opportunity to volunteer without disrupting office operations. Check with your supervisor to ensure there are no conflicts before you complete the registration.

  • Morning Shift: 9 a.m. to Noon
  • Afternoon Shift: 1 to 4 p.m.
