Service PLUS


In order to protect the health and safety of our whole community, in-person Service PLUS programming has been suspended for Fall 2020. Please see information below for changes made to the program.

Service PLUS is a development and recognition opportunity for students who have continuously dedicated their time and energy to community service at Ohio State.

In order to show our appreciation for your engagement with our programs and to help you continue to develop as global citizens, Student Activities’ Service and Outreach team has created the Service PLUS curriculum, available to any student who has been a site leader or participant at Community Commitment, MLK Jr. Day of Service, and Spring Into Service.
