Community Service

  • KCU believes in the importance of reaching beyond the boundaries of our campus to serve the needs of the Greater Kansas City area, particularly those communities in the historic Northeast Neighborhood, where the University has remained a fixture since 1916.

    Student Organization Community Service

    KCU student organizations are committed to making a difference in their community. At KCU, students are encouraged to contribute through institutional partnerships, programs and service-learning opportunities that deliver a significant impact to community organizations.

    KCU maintains an active involvement in local programs, including the Boys and Girls Club, local domestic violence shelters, the City Union Mission, Boy Scouts of America, and Della Lamb. KCU students frequently participate in health fairs and coordinate campus-wide awareness activities for AIDS Week, Domestic Violence Awareness Week, Breast Cancer Awareness Week and many more.

    Score 1 for Health

    KCU's Score 1 for Health program provides yet another opportunity for medical students to give back to the Kansas City community. Through the Score 1 for Health program, KCU osteopathic medical students and faculty provide free health screenings for more than 40 urban-core elementary schools, in an effort to promote good health among children.
