ELM PARK DAY OF SERVICE / PARTNERSHIP PROCLAMATION
2:00 – 5:00 p.m. – Elm Park, Worcester, Mass
Community service has long been part of the student experience at Becker College, and encouraged among faculty and staff. Becker students were responsible for more than 120,000 hours of service last year, as part of residence life, clubs and course work. The Becker community regularly supports such causes as the United Way of Central Massachusetts´ Annual Campaign and Day of Caring, Worcester the City that Reads Give-a-Book campaign, Worcester Local First and its annual food drive, Red Cross blood drives, care packages for troops and much more.
Dr. Johnson´s message of social responsibility takes service at Becker College to a new level. It reaches beyond campus and our local communities. It reaches deeper than donating time or money. It challenges us to redefine our ideas, to weave social responsibility into our daily interactions and dreams for the future.
Here are a few recent examples of social responsibility at Becker College:
- Enough is Enough
- Rally: Budget Cuts Cost Lives
- A Taste of Honduras
- Students Intern at MA State Police Crime Lab, District Attorney, District Court Probation
- Kevin Coyne Honored for Work with Special Olympics
- Becker Veterinary Science Students Assist at Free Pet Clinics Throughout Worcester
