There are numerous ways to get involved while a student at Gonzaga. Below are some of the main organizations that provide opportunities for student involvement.
Center for Community Action and Service-Learning (CCASL): CCASL is driven to provide a continuum of service opportunities for students to experience while attending Gonzaga University. CCASL programs range from one time service opportunities to weekly programs that go all year long. Come join our plunge service projects and help breathe life into Gonzaga’s mission of creating “men and women for others.”

Crosby Student Center: Crosby is the home of lounging, studying, meeting, greeting, and merry-making on campus. Inside its walls you can find numerous opportunities for involvement as well as purchase discounted tickets, find a lost item, grab a snack, and track down a study partner. “Energy” is Crosby’s motto—so get busy booking an event table, posting fliers, painting a window, and creating a larger-than life poster.

The department can also link students to resources (Catholic and otherwise) and church communities off campus.
