Impact

We make a difference!

Yes, service and citizenship have been a part of who we are as Ragin' Cajuns from the very start. But we REALLY started counting about 20 years ago. That's when we were one of the very first in the country to bring in an AmeriCorps team. Our UL Lafayette AmeriCorps members have logged in more than 350,000 hours of service in our community. That's the top of any group, class, or event on campus-that's getting thing's done!

In 2014, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette earned a place on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the third consecutive year. Every year, students and faculty at UL Lafayette perform more than 150,000 hours of service, translating into millions of dollars of economic impact.
