As a Morehead State University (MSU) student, you can participate in many regional engagement opportunities in our 22 county service region. MSU has identified four regional need areas – community building, economic/entrepreneurial development, education, and health and wellness. The opportunities to contribute your time, talent, and treasure are limitless.
Employers and graduate schools will be looking for students who have co- and extra-curricular experiences prior to graduation. Through the regional engagement opportunities – volunteering, service-learning, and regional engagement capstone projects – you can strengthen and deepen your learning experience. Below are several resources to help you document these experiences.
The Volunteer Center at the Center for Regional Engagement strives to identify volunteer opportunities throughout our 22 county service region and post them on our MSU CaREs Volunteer Hub site for our students, faculty, and staff to review. You can sign up for a FREE Volunteer Hub account and start giving back in ways that meet your personal and academic needs. For more information about MSUCaREs, please contact Melisa Patrick, Community Service Coordinator by phone at 606.783.9327 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please regularly submit your service experience throughout your time at MSU so that the Center can provide you with a co-curricular transcript at your convenience.
