Highlander Day of Service
Highlander Day of Service

The Highlander Day of Service pays homage to UC Riverside’s national recognition as a leader in community service.

Now in our fifth year, we recently encouraged Highlanders across the nation to dedicate a portion of their weekend to give back to their communities by organizing or participating in community service events. 

We look forward to you joining us next year to create a project or volunteer in your area!


UCR Alumni Association members are invited to join committees that help shape the footprint and initiatives of the Alumni Association. For more information about committee opportunities, please fill out the UCRAA Committee Application and email it ucralum@ucr.edu.


Make your mark on the next generation of Highlanders!
