Community Day Spring 2016

The College of St. Scholastica Community Day
Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Welcome to the registration page for the College’s Spring Community Day of service.
Classes are canceled during the day on the Duluth campus but learning and service continue.


Our spring Community Day will offer a number of interesting options to serve and engage with our community.
  1. Celebrate "I Love to Read Month" by signing up to volunteer at a local school. Elementary school kids are eager for the opportunity to read and/or connect with college students, faculty and staff! Sign up below and after registration is closed, you will be contacted by a volunteer group leader about travel plans and details for your site.
  2. Dignitas students and faculty are preparing food, raising money, publicizing the event and delivering the Thanksgiving in the Spring meal to people in need in our community. First year students should be in contact with Dignitas instructors about assignments for the day.
  3. Legislative Forum:  Instead of CSS going to the Capitol this year, the Capitol is coming to us! Join Student Senators and St. Scholastica administrators to meet and speak with Minnesota legislators at a Legislative Forum.  The Forum will include a CSS update from President Goodwin, remarks from Student Senate leadership on the importance of the Minnesota State Grant Program and other forms of federal/state assistance, and a Q&A for legislators/students, followed by a casual dinner and the opportunity to speak directly with legislators. Attendees who preregister on the Community Day website will receive training materials to prepare them to speak effectively with legislators. Students can sign up below to participate in this event.
  4. Faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the day-long UMD Diversity Summit.
  5. Have you coordinated another event with students? Please let us know so that we can accurately track participation numbers and ensure we don’t duplicate contact sites.
