Volunteerism is an integral part of the culture on our campus. All CMSRU students engage in service learning projects within the community as part of the curriculum. The outreach efforts are directed based on community needs as expressed through focus groups and at the recommendation of our Community Advisory Committee. We believe that immersion of our students in this fashion provides them with a more realistic view of the social, economic and cultural influences/barriers facing our urban communities. CMSRU outreach to schools, homeless shelters, soup kitchens and churches demonstrate our commitment to the community and make concepts taught in the classroom more tangible. CMSRU students are engaged in service learning projects at LEAP Academy, Charles Brimm Medical Arts High School, Cathedral Kitchen, and Volunteers of America of Delaware Valley, to name a few.
