How do go I about exploring program partnerships in an official capacity with UW Tacoma?

The Center for Service and Leadership is where student led initiatives are created and supported by the university, so depending on your vision for partnership you may be seeking to connect with different areas of campus:

  • Student Volunteer Service Programs (see CSL programs below)
    • Contact: Assistant Director for Student Involvement & Leadership-  Elizabeth Hansen
  • Academic or Administrative Inquiries
    • Contact:  Assistant Chancellor for Community Partnerships- Ali Modarres. Visit the Office of Community Partnerships website.


What programs can I partner with in the CSL?

  • Alternative Breakaway:   your organization could gain the support of 8-15 college volunteers in this week-long service immersion trip. Designed by a student breakaway coordinator and your organization this immersive trip gives students perspective on a social issue, while providing valuable service to the community and your organization. For more information please contact our Student Breakaway Coordinator at or visit
  • Day of Caring:  Be a host volunteer site for our campus wide day of service.  Receive volunteer service from 10-30 college students for a one day project and exposure of your organization to over 100+ students and faculty.  The event is usually held mid October and service work conducted from 9-3pm. For more information please contact our student coordinator
  • Service Events:   If you need volunteers for one-time projects consider contacting a small service coalition of students looking to learn more about our community and give back a couple times a month year round.  Your organization could be the next service site!  For more information please contact our Local Student Events Coordinator at
