UC Serves

UC Serves is a staff and faculty community service event hosted by Emerging Leaders in Student Affairs (ELSA) and the Center for Community Engagement (CCE).

UC Serves offers staff and faculty the chance to give back to the community while building a stronger network of colleagues on campus through the shared experience of intentional, focused service to the communities surrounding University of Cincinnati campuses. 

Think of UC Serves as a way to embrace the university's commitment to enhancing community-wide partnerships and investing in faculty and staff development as outlined in UC's strategic vision - Next Lives Here. UC Serves will allow you to not only "talk the talk" but also "walk the walk." 


UC Serves is back for its eighth year in 2021! UC Serves 2021 will take be held July 19-30. Staff and faculty will be able to decide when to complete their service!


UC Serves is organized by Emerging Leaders in Student Affairs (ELSA). Please contact ELSA's UC Serves Chair Hannah Williamson with any questions.

ELSA seeks to cultivate a landscape of professional scholarship and advancement among rising staff members at UC. The group is open to staff members whose work would benefit from increased professional development opportunities, exposure to Student Affairs research and professional networking and mentoring programming. We encourage you to get involved with ELSA.
