President's Day


President’s Day of Service

President's Day of ServiceFounded in conjunction with Dr. Ivany’s inauguration in 2005, the President’s Day of Service is a time honored tradition which gives the campus community an opportunity to truly embody the St. Thomas mission of educating leaders of faith and character.

Open to all Celts – students, alumni, faculty, staff and families, the President’s Day of Service occurs in February and offers a wide range of service projects where Celts work side-by-side and support the University without leaving campus.

The projects are flexible and are determined by the needs of the University and of the surrounding community.

The day begins at 8:30 a.m. with a breakfast with Dr. Ivany in Crooker Center.
