Office of Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement

The Office of Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement's mission is to provide opportunities for student learning and development through leadership and community service programming, to promote service learning throughout the campus, to foster relationships between SUNY Geneseo and the broader community, and to increase awareness of our society's needs. The Office of Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement provides many valuable resources to organizations looking to develop service projects such as contacts in Livingston County, grants, and programs.

Livingston CARES

Livingston CARES is a collaborative effort among groups and organizations at SUNY Geneseo and the Geneseo and Livingston County community that started in September 2005 to focus relief and recovery efforts on helping people in Harrison County, Mississippi. With the great need brought by Katrina's devastation, CARES has been created with new partnerships that give us great flexibility in bringing aid to those in need. Each year four work trips are taken by students, faculty and staff and community residents to aid with Hurricane Katrina relief. If you are interested in participating in a future trip, you may pick up an application in the Center for Community in MacVittie 353 or download the forms from the website below.
