The Lutz Center for Community Service

You will find the heart of service learning on the Cedar Crest Campus at the Allen House in the Lutz Center for Community Service.

Day of Service 2015The mission of the Lutz Center for Community Service is based on a social justice model which recognizes the need for fair treatment of individuals and groups and a just share for all in the benefits of society. The center assists students in developing an awareness of and commitment to their community through program offerings. In addition, the Center Director and the service coordinators are excellent resources for discussing the opportunities available to match your schedule and interests. Most activities require only one to two hours a week and transportation is usually provided. The staff is committed to helping students find sites and experiences in their community where their talent and commitment are needed.

The Community Service Coordinators present workshops and programs that address societal problems such as hunger, homelessness and illiteracy. Presentations may be scheduled for your organization, agency, or classroom by contacting the Lutz Center. The Lutz Center is committed to helping everyone fulfill their community service aspirations. If there is a specific community service project you would like to do, please do not hesitate to call. The Lutz Center is available for you, not only to benefit your resume, but to fulfill your commitment to your community.


The Lutz Center for Community Service at Cedar Crest College is located in Room 318 of the Tompkins College Center.


Monday through Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm. Additional times are available by appointment.
