Orientation Day of Service

Each year during Orientation, we welcome all first-year undergraduate students to engage with the vibrant city of Pittsburgh and learn about Carnegie Mellon’s culture of civic engagement through direct service with community partners. Students have the opportunity to engage in neighborhood and river cleanups, organize donations, prepare meals for local families, and more. This year’s event will take place on August 24,2024. More information, including a list of participating community partners, will be available on Tartan Connect later this summer.

Fall Day of Service

The SLICE office sponsors a Day of Service event open to the entire CMU community. 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. More information about next year’s events will be available in Summer 2024.
