It can be seen on the walls of the university, on the school’s website, and staff and faculty members have it memorized. Globe University-La Crosse considers its mission of “We Care” when connecting with students, employees, and the community.

To demonstrate “We Care” in the community, Globe University-La Crosse regularly volunteers, donates, and supports non-profit organizations in the area. On average, Globe students and staff participate in 70 community related events and accumulate 350 hours of community involvement per month!

Volunteer opportunities are promoted regularly. Students are encouraged to volunteer to give back, develop skills, and build connections with each other and the community. No one is required to volunteer, but many students, from all Globe programs, understand the important of volunteering and enjoy getting involved!

To lead by example, Globe staff and faculty frequently participate in volunteer projects.  Recently, five staff members volunteered at Wafer Food Pantry stocking shelves, assisting clients, and sorting food. Stephanie Cline, Campus Director, Sarah Thompson, Director of Career Services, Kayla Martin and Faith Bergin, Administrative Assistants, and Brady Lowe, Communications and Community Relations, had a terrific time supporting a wonderful community organization!
