The Alford Center exists to support and collaborate with students, faculty, and staff as they actively engage in service and interact with people in our local Licking County community and beyond, through our partnerships with community-based organizations and with local schools as we work together to address community needs and issues. The Alford Center develops and sustains opportunities and projects with community partners while also advancing student learning and development through intentional, reflective service. Our community partners enhance student learning about relevant social issues, and through service, students have opportunities to learn about and engage in community and civic affairs in meaningful and substantive ways.
We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the John W. Alford Foundation, and we thank the Alford Foundation for their continued support of Denison University and our community through the Alford Center for Service Learning.
