Community Partners and Volunteering
Our office has a great relationship with many community partners including non profit agencies, city departments and other wonderful community organizations. We place, train and supervise Cox Civic Scholars in each of the below community partners. One of their roles is to help IU students find volunteer opportunities.
If you are interested in volunteering or giving back to the community in other ways please reach out to the Civic Scholar at the specific agency that interests you for more information.
You may also reach out to the Assistant Director of Community Engagement for any other questions related to volunteering in the Bloomington community.

Incoming freshmen are eligible to receive a highly selective and competitive four-year scholarship funded through the Cox Scholarship for their service and campus outreach.
These scholars participate in robust leadership development education to hone their skills and expand their knowledge about social justice. They work with a local Bloomington or regional nonprofit agency and provide hands-on direct service and outreach to support IU students and student organizations looking to engage in community service.
The goal of this scholarship program is to engage student leaders in meaningful service that results in a profound and sustainable positive impact on the community.
Each Month our team hosts a panel of community and campus leaders to engage in dialogue about a social issue impacting our local community in the Indiana Memorial Union.
Crimson Cupboard Food Pantry
