Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla challenges all UC San Diego community members to perform 50 hours or more of community service during the academic year.
In addition to supporting the university’s mission of service, Volunteer50 will showcase the widespread and diverse contributions of the UC San Diego community, and the remarkable work being done by our partner agencies throughout the region.
Originally established as part of UC San Diego’s 50th anniversary celebration, Volunteer50 supports the campus’s mission of service by connecting campus members with volunteer opportunities and showcasing the collective impact of UC San Diego volunteers.
To participate, register online to join the Volunteer50 community, powered by NobleHour. Search for volunteer opportunities or record the service you are already doing. You can also share information about upcoming volunteer events. As a Volunteer50 member, you can volunteer anywhere and with any organization—all community service counts!
