Valparaiso University’s Lutheran character is reflected in the call to service, which is carried out by members of all faiths.

Lisa Morton, a theology/youth, family and education ministry major from Gurnee, Ill., found ways to serve through College Mentors for Kids, as well as through Valpo’s residential ministry program.

The Social Action Leadership Team, a student organization sponsored by the Chapel of the Resurrection, has raised tens of thousands of dollars in relief efforts benefiting Haiti and Japan, and has organized service trips around the country.

Join the Engineers Without Borders chapter and work on irrigation projects all over the world (and you don’t even have to be an engineering major).

Take a class on charitable giving that has real-world impact.

As Lisa describes in her video, students at Valpo are inspired to help others.
