Lyn Huxford Center for Community Service Mission & Goals

The Lyn Huxford Center for Community Service supports volunteer activities and the development of curricular programs that link community service to academic coursework. McCat, the McKendree Community Action Team is the student coordinated volunteer corp. supported by the Center. The goals of the Center are to contribute to the intellectual development, sense of social responsibility, and active citizenship of students by engaging them in meaningful and academically sound service experiences which:

(1) enhance the understanding of each discipline;

(2) provide an opportunity to practice skills specific to the various disciplines;
(3) foster personal growth as an active member of a community of learners; and,
(4) cultivate the intellect and spirit of persons who care for one another and for the world in which they live and work.

The Lyn Huxford Center for Community Service strives to foster a commitment to service at all levels of campus life. The Center provides a clearinghouse of information on and opportunities for community service and the staff of the Center work with the community to determine how McKendree students, faculty, and staff can help serve their needs.
