COVID-19 Policy Update on In-Person Community Service

The Bonner Office of Civic Engagement remains committed to doing work to meaningfully address community needs. Because we care about the health of our students and our community, we must make the shift from doing this work in-person to doing it remotely.

For the Spring 2021 semester, in accordance with Spelman’s Path Forward, all in-person community service activities are suspended. During this time, the BOCE will neither support nor promote any in-person community service activities, nor will the BOCE approve any “service hours” logged into Galaxy Digital that are completed in-person.

We have been working with community partners to identify and develop remote volunteer opportunities for this semester. You can find those opportunities in Spelman Serves. Additionally, opportunities will be sent via email as they arise.

We know the tremendous benefits of in-person community service, both for students and for our community partners. We look forward to resuming in-person community service when it is safe to do so. We will revisit this policy in the Fall 2021 semester to determine if it should be continued, modified or eliminated.

Any students, faculty, staff or partners who have questions about this policy change can reach out to us at
