Personal Development Activities

Some students are required to complete specific workshops in the list. Please refer to the discipline letter that you received for your requirements.

In-Person Workshops

Workshops are meant to help students develop essential life skills, such as good relationships with their neighbors, healthy sleep habits, and essential organization and study skills. The Office of the Dean of Students offers these programs each semester. Current Semester Schedule.

Community Service

Service work is an important component of Bloomsburg University’s relationship with our larger town community. From the annual Breast Cancer Walk to the Big Event, Huskies are great at lending a help hand and raising awareness about topics that affect our communities, large and small.

Not only does service work improve our campus and town, it helps us grow our individual perspectives and experiences, and makes a great addition to any resume. We encourage students to choose projects that excite them, or that they would like to learn more about.

Find your next service opportunity here: Center for Leadership and Engagement Service Portal

All service hours completed for any Dean of Students mandated community service must be completed either on campus or in the Bloomsburg Town community.

All service advertised on The Office of the Dean of Students website is preapproved: http://intranet.bloomu.edu/dean-students-community-service

You must print out a community service log sheet and submit that sheet to The Office of the Dean of Students as verification of participation.
