The Shriver Center strives to promote the integration of civic engagement, teaching, learning, and discovery on campus, regionally, and nationally so that each advances the others for the benefit of society.� Each year the Shriver Center helps place students with businesses as well as non-profits, enabling them to combine work and service with education.
