Transylvania University’s location in the heart of Lexington presents our students with many opportunities to serve. Our emphasis on service lets our students impact the community and world around them.
Around 90 percent of Transylvania students are involved in some kind of service. Ongoing projects, work-study appointments, and special student groups enable our campus community to meet needs year-round. Annually, Transylvania community members contribute thousands of service hours to Lexington and the extended community.
Transylvania’s Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement helps connect you with service opportunities. We encourage our students, faculty, and staff to question social inequalities of the world around them, and find ways to effect change. We believe that any definition of the liberal arts includes an element of outreach and service, both personally and institutionally.
Transylvania does not base employment or academic decisions on a person’s age, race, color, gender, disability or any other criteria prohibited by law. We are committed to providing equal opportunity in employment and education for all.
