Connecting with the Mount

Participating in the President’s Day of Service

To honor the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and the idea of “Serving our dear neighbor”, the office of Community Engagement created a special day where the Mount family serves the community. While one day of service cannot meet every need in every community, bringing all Mount students, faculty, staff and alums together to make a difference at one time can have a substantial impact on both the individuals involved in this shared experience and the greater community.
