Throughout the year the Community Service Center offers opportunities for BSU community members and regional partners to serve alongside each other during National Days of Service and annual campus events. These events aim to encourage volunteerism and enhance connections to the community.
Peace Flag Project
The Peace Flag Project occurs throughout campus during the fall semester. Students, staff, faculty and community members are asked to design a Peace Flag to represent their vision of peace, justice, hope, and community. The flags are displayed on campus to celebrate the BSU community's hope for peace. The project was adopted from The Peace Flag Project in Providence, RI.
MLK Day of Service
Bridgewater State University honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by coming together to serve others for the greater good of the community. Each year BSU hosts a community breakfast followed by opportunities for people of all backgrounds and ages to celebrate Dr. King's legacy by turning community concerns into citizen action through community service projects.

BSU recognizes the impactful service done by BSU community members and organizes a large off-campus service project open to all students, staff and faculty.
