Student Connections

Are you looking for ways to boost the impact of your creative activities, scholarship, or service in community settings? U-TuRN can help!

We have a strong commitment to promoting student engagement in U-TuRN and offer many ways for students to connect and get involved. There are opportunities for both undergraduates and graduate students. There are also both informal and formal ways to connect. Informal ways include connecting through GivePulse or through the Community Engagement Club or Beyond Academia. Formal ways include leadership roles in the various student groups or through independent studies, service learning opportunities or internships.  Check out the associated links below to learn more.
