Collection of Service

Alumni Weekend


As part of Swarthmore College’s sesquicentennial celebration in 2014, the Alumni Council initiated a Collection of Service program as an opportunity to highlight the service that countless alumni provide to their local communities around the world. The Collection of Service is a recognition, a celebration, and also an opportunity to bring alumni together for volunteer work that promotes the common good. In last year’s 3rd annual Collection of Service, seven cities organized service events—Boston, Daly City, North Carolina, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Tucson, and Washington DC.

Please check back to this page in the coming weeks to find out if there will be a Collection of Service event in your area. Or, if you would like to organize an event, please contact Geoff Semenuk in the Alumni office at or (610) 328-8453.

In addition, if you already provide ongoing volunteer service to your community, please share your information with the Alumni Office so that your story might serve as inspiration to others.
