UMSI Service Week

What is Service Week?

UMSI Service Week is a week-long event dedicated to service in the local community. The entire UMSI community is invited to engage with the community by working on identified service projects throughout the week in non-profit organizations around the Ann Arbor area. These projects levy a wide range of skills from the UMSI community, from painting and archiving to cleaning and quick usability analysis. It's a fun and exciting event, and we need YOU to make it happen!

The entire UMSI community (faculty, staff, students and alumni) is welcome to participate.

For Organizations

If you have some work that needs to get done, and could be completed by a small or larger group of volunteers, consider UMSI's Service Week as an option. Projects could range from one to four hours, during any number of days during the Service Week. 

Look for our project submission form coming this fall to submit a project.
