CBU Serves: Connecting. Collaborating. Caring.

In the past, September of Service was a month-long, student-led project started in 2012 by Dr. Tracie Burke, with the aim to partner with a different Memphis non-profit organization every day in September while upholding the Lasallian values, engaging Memphis communities through leadership, and inspiring spiritual growth through service.

Please join this year’s CBU Serves/SOS Leaders in bringing that experience to a new generation of students at CBU and expanding it to the year-long CBU Serves.
