Radford University Students for Positive Change

RUSPC works play a key role in coordinating and promoting community service, and offer activities, films, forums, and presentations to raise awareness of important community, social, and environmental issues.  This team will:

  • Plan and implement an RU Students for Positive Change program/event series including the Volunteer & Service Fair, film screenings, service/volunteer opportunities, and campus discussions.  Working as a team, the series will consist of approximately five activities and events each semester.
  • Work with student groups to facilitate both preparation and reflection discussions for student groups involved in community service projects.
  • Attend and assist with all major Community Engagement Office sponsored events.
  • Support the Community Engagement Office in promoting RU Alternative Break Immersion Projects.

As a result of your involvement on the RUSPC leadership team, you’ll have the opportunity to work with other students committed to creating a more fair and just society, and you will help develop a new generation of RU students committed to these ideals.  Team members will also receive a Certificate of Servant Leadership from the Office of Community Engagement.
