Our Campus Cares

Student Affairs and Student Community Services  developed a new and exciting opportunity to unite our campus. The objective of Our Campus Cares is to help our campus and local community thrive! The 2022-2023 chosen initiatives are listed at the bottom of this page. Students and employees are eligible to earn service hours by participating in OCC service initiatives.

Our Mission:

“The Our Campus Cares initiative strives to include all Shepherd students and employees in an effort to give back to the local community and fellow rams. The OCC initiative will continue Shepherd’s tradition of service by uniting together for specific causes each semester. As a unified campus, we can make a difference in the lives of others”
