Community Engagement


Educating yourself may begin with classes, study sessions, books, midterm papers, exams and cram sessions. But that is merely the first step in an amazing opportunity for transformation.

Community Engagement is about becoming involved in real-world experiences that engage WNCC students in the communities in the Western Panhandle of Nebraska and beyond. We provide opportunities for students to bring their academic curriculum to life through community-focused service projects that benefit our local community members and beyond.

Community Service Opportunities

The student organizations on the WNCC campuses are all involved in community service projects.  Each student organization sponsors projects and encourage their fellow students to get involved with these opportunities to support our local communities. 

WNCC Participating in the Make A Difference Day 

Make A Difference Day is celebrated each year on the 4th Saturday in October. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, it is the nation’s largest day of volunteering. Together with long-standing partner HandsOn Network, the generosity of Newman’s Own and hundreds of carrier newspapers, USA WEEKEND rallies millions in a single day to help change the world. This year WNCC students, faculty and staff are being encouraged to participate in a community project in the Western Panhandle of Nebraska.
