Drop-in Kindness Event Schedule

Serving together as a diverse group of students with various religious and non-religious identities creates the space to learn from one another.

We will be providing specific volunteer opportunities for you throughout the year located both on- and off-campus. During the events, you will have the opportunity to reflect on what personal values inspired you to serve, as well as learn about the role of spiritual wellness in community service and acts of kindness. The Kindness Initiative is a city-wide partnership project between UMB and JHeritage.

The three drop-in Kindness Initiative projects that will be held on campus this year are as follows:
