Project Impact is Union’s community service day in the fall that coordinates over 60 service agencies in the city of Lincoln with more than 85 percent of the school family participting. It is a catalyst for service throughout the school year and a reminder that Jesus calls Christians to be His hands and feet to those in need.
Project Impact is the longest running and largest community service project of any college and university in the U.S. “Always student led, it reflects the mission of Union College and its desire to create an environment and the opportunities for our whole school family to grow in their relationship with Jesus,” said Carlson.
