| Service Committee

The purpose of the Service Committee, a standing Committee of UWC, is to coordinate volunteer service activities aligned with the UWC Mission Statement. Along with our major role in funding scholarships for women students, our projects identify relevant needs for OSU and its environs. We seek out opportunities, receive and approve proposals and track outcomes , as well as comply with tax exemption requirements. We also enjoy the fellowship! Service funds are used to support the activities established by the committee for the Club Year. 

| Organization

The Service Committee accepts three tiers of volunteer involvement:


Our yearly initiatives require the commitment, energy, and involvement of all our members. Below are the programs we have developed for the year

Interest Groups

Create activities appropriate to the members of that group. Three of our groups have yearly volunteer projects: Yarns and Stitches, Toymakers and Music


Members may select and follow through on an idea alone or with friends. Remember to consult the OSU Volunteer Office Online if your want more ideas
