Volunteer Opportunities 

Interested in volunteering to help students at any of the three campuses at Commonwealth University?


At Commonwealth University our hard-working and determined students are at the heart of everything we do. Together we leverage the power of Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, and Mansfield to provide affordable, high-quality education emphasizing high-impact practices, personal and career connections, and inclusivity supporting all learners to succeed in our region and beyond.

To achieve this mission, we want to equip every student with practical, meaningful experiences, and alumni and employer connections so students will be prepared to impact their community and workplace. Our integrated commitment to student success is called Professional U and we need YOU! Professional U creates a career community of faculty, staff, alumni and employers to make our mission come to life!

We are excited to announce new alumni volunteer opportunities which will bring you closer to students and faculty as we work toward our mission.
