  • Dean Gives Back

    Giving back to the local community is an important part of being a Dean College Bulldog.  Community engagement opportunities are another way that you can interact with faculty and staff outside of the classroom.  By participating in these opportunities, you will realize your ability to positively impact the lives of others.  

    The Office of Orientation & Community Service sponsors projects planned both on and off-campus every month in conjunction with Dean Community Outreach (DCO), Dean’s student-run community service group.  Projects range from stocking shelves at the Franklin Food Pantry to collecting pull tabs from cans for the Ronald McDonald House to volunteering at events in the town of Franklin.  Projects are open to all students, faculty and staff to actively participate in and are made known through a variety of ways throughout campus.

    In addition to DCO, Dean College also sponsors chapters of Best Buddies and Rotaract.  The membership of these student-run groups is open to all students.

    Some of the service projects and locations that the Dean Community has worked with are:

    • UnitedHealthcare “Do Good. Live Well.” Playground Build
    • Franklin Food Pantry
    • Blood Drives
    • Nason Street Park Clean-Up
    • Santa Foundation
    • Little Heart Hero Day with the American Heart Association
    • Walk to Defeat ALS with The ALS Association

    If you are interested in being a part of any of our projects, please reach out to Jennifer Polimer, Director of Orientation, Community Service & Special Projects at jpolimer@dean.edu or 508-541-1596.
