The GIVE Center has been making an impact on the lives of the many people we have served since 1997. We have been fortunate enough to be able to touch the lives of our students, staff, and faculty; but the work our students have done has reached much farther. With the help of our office our students have touched the lives of people in our community, our state, our country, and over seas. With all of our amazing students and their hard work, The GIVE Center's efforts were bound to be recognized. Here is a list of what we have been able to accomplish One at a Time.
The GIVE Center was chosen by The Templeton Foundation as a college that encourages character development through our service programs.
