Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action


“The purpose of education is to make the world a better place.”

Philosopher John Dewey’s insight on the intersection of education and community frames the work of the Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action. Home of the College’s service-learning program, the Bunting Center sponsors a range of opportunities for students to learn through service, enriching their college experience by exploring and engaging in the community outside the gates.

Key Bunting Center programs include:

  • Ongoing community partnerships with service agencies in Birmingham that address a range of needs.

  • Annual Exploration Term projects and alternative springs breaks that offer intensive service experiences in diverse settings.

  • Classes in multiple disciplines that integrate service into the curriculum.

  • Other opportunities such as Outreach Days, clothing and meal card drives, and voter registration initiatives. Check out the links to the left to learn more about how you can get involved.

For additional information, please contact a Bunting Center staff member or visit the Bunting Center in the Engaged Programs Suite, which is on the second floor of Norton Campus Center just around the corner from Student Development.
