Opportunities for Residents

Lead together.

Being a part of the Civic Leaders Center means connecting with other like-minded students who have a passion for serving their communities, whether local, national, or international. Civic Leaders not only give back to their community through service projects, but also learn how to maximize their Indiana University education and launch careers that include a meaningful civic or service component.
