USAC Community Service Commission
Since 1965, the Community Service Commission (CSC) has focused its efforts towards creating social change, understanding the greater Los Angeles community, and promoting campus-wide service programming. As the community service focused office of UCLA student government (USAC), we serve both as an umbrella organization for 33 student-run service projects, and a center for the service efforts of the campus community, using large-scale service programming, and advocacy & awareness initiatives to engage UCLA students in service. CSC projects work independently under our umbrella to address issues within the community, using both direct service and advocacy to affect social change. Each of our projects focuses on a particular issue in areas ranging from poverty and homelessness, to education, to health, and beyond. CSC staff members plan Alternative Break immersion trips, campus events such as Day of Service and Nonprofit Networking Night, and quarterly advocacy campaigns. We partner with other campus organizations and UCLA administration to co-program service events. Our staff also works directly with projects to help further their efforts. Through the Commissioner, we have a voice on USAC to represent service-minded students across campus. Our overall mission is to better the Los Angeles & global community with both direct service and advocacy, and to educate and inspire fellow students to do the same.
