Carnegie Mellon University

Days of Service

Volunteer with your fellow Tartans during CMU's Days of Service, which include both small and large scale opportunities.

Orientation Day of Service

Each year during Orientation, we welcome all first-year undergraduate and graduate students to engage with the vibrant city of Pittsburgh and learn about Carnegie Mellon’s culture of civic engagement through direct service with more than 25 community partners. Students have the opportunity to engage in neighborhood and river cleanups, organize donations, prepare meals for local families and more.

Undergraduates will learn more about the day in their Orientation materials or by talking with their RA or OC. Graduate students will receive more information during their Orientation.

Fall Day of Service

SLICE assists with identifying community partners and service projects that meet community-identified needs in Pittsburgh, training student site leaders who will lead participants through the project, as well as orchestrating a kickoff event and all necessary logistics for the day.The 2023 Fall Day of Service will be Saturday, October 7.
