Celebrate Earth Day

earth day

Ashford University is proud to call San Diego home, and one of the ways that we give back to our community is by doing our part to protect the environment. This month we celebrate Earth Day, and we want to encourage you to do your part to ensure that the world is a clean and healthy place to live. One great way that you can get involved is through the Ashford University S.T.A.R. program.


Sharing Time and Resources

The world is your campus , and it presents an opportunity to impact change. Every student, alumnus, faculty member, and administrator can make a positive difference in the community. Volunteering is a vital piece of your educational experience that will help you improve your critical thinking and give you an opportunity to learn new skills. Volunteering might even prompt you to explore career options you may not have considered.

Ashford University's Sharing Time And Resources, or S.T.A.R., Program provides you with the opportunity to give back to your communities through volunteering and service.

Volunteer Opportunities

S.T.A.R. events are hosted at locations across the nation at local non-profits and other venues. Students and alumni receive invitations to these events if they reside near the geographic location of a scheduled event.

Do you have questions on how to get started or ideas for volunteer projects in your own community? Contact our office; we can provide guidance to help you be successful in your volunteer endeavors.
