Make A Difference Week

Starting in 2015, the Center for Community Engagement instituted Make a Difference Week (MADW), an extension of national Make a Difference Day, the largest single day of volunteering in the country. MADW provides our campus community with the opportunity to explore how we, as individuals and as a campus, can contribute to the public good. MADW features several events on campus and culminates in the day of service. Learn more about MADW.
