Day of Service 

On Friday, September 27, Hilbert College will join our fellow Franciscan colleges and universities across the nation in participating in a campus-wide Day of Service to allow students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends to live out the Hilbert mission of serving and strengthening their communities.

Students, alumni, faculty, and staff are invited to participate and be a part of Hilbert’s Day of Service, a Franciscan Day of Caring! This day is an important opportunity for Hilbert volunteers to see and understand the impact and importance of service, as well as take action to promote equality, justice, respect and compassion.

Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately for the work that they will be performing.  Pants, jeans or knee-length shorts and closed-toe, sturdy shoes (such as sneakers) with socks are required. Volunteers should not wear tank tops, sweatpants, yoga pants, leggings or revealing/tight-fitting clothing.  Hilbert t-shirts will be provided at check-in to all volunteers who register prior to September 20th. 

Check-in is at 8:45am in the Campus Center.  Transportation to and from our community partners will be provided, along with lunch at about 1:00pm in Hilbert’s Campus Center.

Hilbert College is proud to be partnering with various community partners to provide service sites for this year’s event.  Our community partners for this year's Day of Service will be announced on August 20th.

    If you are a non-profit or community organization who would like to partner with Hilbert College as part of our Day of Service, please reach out to Rachel Wozniak at
