Student Community Services was founded in 1972 and is a student-run organization administered by Dean of Students . The organization is designed to provide opportunities for community involvement that meet a broad range of student interests while providing meaningful service to the off-campus community. In 1995, students passed a referendum allocating a student fee to support Student Community Services. The student fee is designated to provide opportunities for career, leadership, and personal development, increased opportunities to work experience related to majors, support for individual student and service-oriented projects, and funds to support individuals and clubs dedicated to volunteer service.

Student Community Services (SCS) provides the opportunity for students to act as vital members of the community, share their resources with others and develop skills and leadership abilities while creating meaningful social change.

Within SCS, there are eight volunteer programs that organize events ranging from helping the homeless to helping the environment. SCS hosts annual events such as See the Need Week, Homelessness Awareness Week, and Change the Status Quo, a one day conference designed to give students tangible tools to be effective advocates for social change.
