Community Service and Engagement

A major goal at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and the Student Leadership, Involvement, and Community Engagement (SLICE) office is to assist our students in becoming civically engaged in their communities through the act of service. Each year, Mines students and staff members impact our local community through meaningful service projects. We believe it is important to prepare our students for their roles as citizens and leaders through community-based educational and volunteer experiences. This page was created to help SD Mines students find volunteer opportunities on campus and in the greater Rapid City community. Take a few moments to browse through the page, and get engaged today!
