Community Service

Heal the World.

There's something different about SCU students. Their desire for careers in chiropractic and acupuncture/oriental medicine goes much deeper than monetary rewards or professional respect or even the dream of operating their own practice. They have an innate desire to help people lead healthier, fuller lives. Ask any SCU graduate why he or she went into the field, and the answer is almost always the same: To heal the world.

You'll get a good start at SCU through our wide range of community service projects. As a result, you'll develop a profound compassion for people from all walks of life, make connections with professionals in the field, and broaden your worldview of humankind. In recent years, students have treated bicyclists, athletes, firefighters, and breast cancer walk and tae kwon do tournament participants as part of community service projects.

Many SCU students are actively involved throughout the year in selfless acts of service across California, the western region, the country, and the world. Recent projects have included:
