SWOOP Day, ‘Service With Our
Osprey Partners’, is a student-participatory day of service that fosters community engagement with local non-profit organizations as an educational component of community service. This day
of service is intended to expand the student outreach from campus
departments at the University of North Florida (UNF).
SWOOP Day was
established to address several different community concerns within
Jacksonville, and focuses on topics included, but not limited to: environmental health, military and veterans, animal welfare, financial literacy, and international relations. In the 2018-2019 academic year, the first annual
SWOOP Day event will emphasize the theme, “Hands-On Service”. UNF campus departments, volunteers, and
community partners will be working together to complete a meaningful project,
determined by the community partner as a ‘need’. Participants will also concentrate on working
together and discover the importance of what it means to be community engaged.
