The world’s a big place, and to find your place in it, you often have to look beyond yourself.

Giving back to the community is part of the D'Youville way of life.

At D’Youville we’re committed to helping our students understand that to improve themselves, they have to improve their community.

Every year, students, faculty, and staff provide over 6,000 hours of community service to a diverse range of organizations that are helping to make the world a better place.

As a student, you’ll learn how making the world a better place can make you a better person as well.

But we’re not just committed to helping our community.

One of our most important core values is making sure that you succeed, too. As a student at D’Youville, you’ll be challenged every day, but you’ll also know that we have your back, no matter what you need to succeed. If you need extra help, our Learning Center will help you with tutoring, workshops, and one-on-one support.

D'Youville Cares

Whether it’s helping you succeed as a student or helping a local family who has run into unexpected hardship, D’Youville cares. Check out the slideshow below to see some of the opportunities you’ll have to find out how. More information can be found on our Campus Ministry page.
