Succeeding academically and professionally is essential, but so is giving back to others – here in Cincinnati and around the world.
Beyond the Campus
Mount St. Joseph University is involved in a variety of activities that improve and enhance the quality of life in the Cincinnati area and beyond. These activities include service, performing arts, visual arts, leisure classes for mature adults, athletic camps, and high school academic programs.
While the University prepares students as effective professionals, we’ve long recognized that there’s more to life than career. It’s also about being productive citizens and ethical leaders ready, willing and able to contribute to the greater good.
The Service Learning Program here at the Mount is based upon its mission statement, "service to others" and is a prime example of how the Mount Community lives and breathes its mission. Service learning combines theory and practice in a very meaningful, engaged, and creative way that benefits Mount students, faculty, and the greater Cincinnati community.
Students apply what they are learning about in their courses to what they see, experience, and learn about while completing service with our community partners. To learn more, visit our service learning page.
