Call to Action Day

Welcome to the Classroom without Walls

Call to Action Day is Notre Dame de Namur University’s (NDNU) annual day of service on which more than 300 students, staff and faculty learn through community service projects rather than through classroom lectures. This year, volunteers will join 11 different community partners in projects that include: recreational park clean-up and restoration, serving meals with local hunger relief organizations, and hands-on learning with elementary school students. An annual  tradition, Call to Action Day reminds volunteers of the university’s core values and hallmarks: providing access to underserved populations and engaging with and serving the community.

 Sign up for a special activity emphasizing NDNU’s community engagement heritage. For a full list of partners and opportunities, please select the catalog button below.
