Volunteering

Get involved

Each year, hundreds of community members devote their time to the University of Chicago and the University of Chicago Medicine, where they usher at concerts, visit hospital patients, cuddle babies, tutor, and much more.

Likewise, each year thousands of University students, faculty, and staff participate in an array of volunteer and service programs that enhance the health, skills, and well-being of all our neighbors. For example:

Whether you’re a member of the University community or a valued neighbor, we invite you to get involved and make a difference. Learn more about University programs by browsing our database of community programs on campus. We also invite you to explore our many academic or cultural events that are open to the community.
