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

Employees are able to participate in community engagement activities during their normal work hours as approved by supervisors. Muhlenberg participates in United Way's annual Day of Caring in addition to their annual fund drive.

Additionally employees volunteer for monthly events (College Connect visits) and annual events (Jefferson Field Day) organized by the College in collaboration with communities.

One faculty member each year receives an award for their community engagement work from the Office of Community Engagement and this award is publicized.
