The BIG Event

Each spring and fall, the University of St. Thomas community dedicates a day to join together in a united effort to further the common good of our human family.  Days of Service provides an opportunity for University of St. Thomas students and faculty to connect with social change efforts in the community while meeting fellow Tommies, alumni, and community partners.

Community Engagement Day

Community Engagement Day connects students to community partners across the Twin Cities that welcome student creativity to address issues in education, food insecurity, animal rights, immigration, civil rights and more.  Students who attend Community Engagement Day will discover how they can contribute to social justice in our community and understand what it means to be a Tommie and to serve the Common Good.
