"It is an act of justice."

Nelson Mandela

Each spring the Center for Community Engagement organizes a day for the Suffolk community to perform service in the Greater Boston area. Service projects take place during daytime and early evening shifts, with a free on-campus noontime celebratory luncheon that recognizes the past year of service. Last year over 200 Suffolk University students, faculty, and staff volunteered at local agencies.
