The Community Service Resource Center (CSRC), a program within the UC Davis Internship and Career Center, has a mission to connect campus members with the community at large. The CSRC is a resource for the UC Davis community that helps promote commitment and dedication to service. It is our overall goal to widen an ethic of service throughout Davis. We advocate service-based learning with the knowledge that making service a part of one's life builds leadership, responsibility, and a better understanding of the needs of communities locally and abroad.

Through one-time opportunities and long-term commitments to international and local non-profits, Aggies are truly making a difference and we hope this commitment to community service continues to grow.
