Make a difference

There are plenty of opportunities on campus to make a difference, particularly through community involvement. The University of Ottawa offers a number of ways for you to get involved with local, national and international organizations and to really make difference.

Volunteering either as part of one of your courses or on your own helps foster social participation and responsibility. It’s also the perfect opportunity to strengthen community ties, bring about positive social change and form solid partnerships. Volunteering allows you to develop leadership skills and essential knowledge and competencies while also fostering core values like inclusion, respect, collaboration, excellence and reciprocity.
