The Center for Community Outreach is the ENTRY POINT for students and community members who are interested in service and outreach programs. Our mission is to connect, serve, and unite both the University of Kentucky campus as well as Lexington, and other outside communities.
Please contact us or visit for more information. We would be happy to help you with all of your service endeavors, no matter how much time you have to give. Beyond the CCO programs, we can connect you to other outside organizations that will be the best match for you.
