Waltham Group Programs
The primary student service outreach is through the Waltham Group, the student-led community service organization. The Waltham Group was founded in 1966, in response to student activism and in recognition of the university’s responsibility to be engaged citizens of the community. Hundreds of students volunteer each year through the Waltham Group, which serves as a center for service and advocacy.
