The heart of what we do
Our dedication to community service is central to our mission as a university. It’s part of who we are. And we’re convinced that devotion to service is one of the most critical values we can instill in our students.
We strive to make community service an integral part of the SFA experience. We provide opportunities to be part of fun, rewarding, large-scale outreach efforts like the BIG Event, Alternative Breaks and the MLK Day of Service.
We also help students connect to community service opportunities that match their schedules, abilities and interests through our Jacks Give Back page.
Commitment to service
SFA is consistently on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, which recognizes institutions nationwide for achieving measurable outcomes in the communities they serve. During the 2017-18 academic year, the SFA community completed 87,750 hours of service.
