Community service

One of the guiding missions of Olin College is to instill a spirit and practice of “giving back” among students through significant and ongoing service to the community. Philanthropy was the central force in the F. W. Olin Foundation since its inception and Olin College is committed to supporting and continuing this tradition among its students, faculty and staff. Olin College encourages community service by providing financial support and reserving time dedicated to community service weekly in the schedule.
