SERV is the umbrella organization for community service at Olin. We are here to Support, Encourage, and Recognize Volunteerism in every form in the community.
SERV consists largely of individual community service projects which involve groups of students, faculty and staff who meet regularly to do community service. Any member of the Olin community may start a project. Each project selects its own leader who is responsible for all aspects of the project including getting volunteers, determining budget needs, coordinating with the appropriate outside organizations and making necessary practical arrangements. SERV is available throughout to provide advice and support.
SERV is governed by two elected student officers and three faculty/staff advisers who foster community awareness, increase involvement in community service activities and generally work to support and coordinate community service activities at Olin. They coordinate with outside groups seeking volunteers, plan one-time and whole community events, maintain the website, charter projects, make budgeting decisions and generally deal with community service concerns that arise throughout the year.
