A brief description of the institution’s employee community service initiatives:

A policy was formally adopted by Human Resources in 2003 to allow full-time employees to volunteer in the community without using their own personal time (vacation) to do so. Initiated by the Staff Advisory Council (SAC), this policy applies to employees volunteering as part of the annual Case for Community Day – an afternoon of service in the Greater Cleveland community. Case Western Reserve University is comprised of 6,000 employees representing 8 schools and many departments. Our employees are involved in approximately 500 community service initiatives in the core areas of education, health, social services and community development. Such initiatives range from mentoring and tutoring, health and wellness for youth and seniors,revitalization of community neighborhoods, employment, among others.
