LUSU involve provides unique, valuable and effective opportunities for Lancaster University students to improve their skills by engaging with the local and international community. This is achieved by establishing close collaborations with academic departments, community organisations, local schools and international partners to create bespoke projects that have clear benefits for all parties.
We know that volunteering helps to enhance and develop the student experience whilst also widening the scope of employability options. With a range of enterprise support and a large number of both community and environmental volunteering available to Lancaster students, LUSU involve is one of the leading volunteering units in Higher Education institutions in the UK. Recently LUSU involve was shortlisted for two Children & Young People Now Awards for the Schools Partnership and Book Circles projects.
Supported through a range of funding options, from LUSU and Lancaster University to the European Skills Foundation and LANPAC, students deliver community, environmental and enterprise work across the North West.
