Community Relations

Making a difference

crphoto2Service is a core value at Ozarks. Our student organizations and campus community love to be involved in volunteer and community service efforts in Clarksville and Johnson County. In recent years, our students have assisted in food drives, provided translation services, volunteered in animal shelters, led beautification efforts and participated in literacy programs. In the 2015-2016 academic year, students offered more than 2,000 hours of documented community and mission-based service and volunteering in local, regional, and global efforts.

Pack the Shack
175 community volunteers from Ozarks, First United Methodist, and The Journey Church came together to provide meals for the backpack programs of Johnson County Schools. 34,000 meals were packed in just over one hour. What a way to spend a Saturday morning!

Imagination Library
Johnson County Imagination Library is brought to you by a partnership with University of the Ozarks, River Valley United Way and other donors. This program promotes literacy, learning and family values by providing free books to more than 400 children age birth to 5 years throughout Johnson County, Arkansas. The books are paid for by local donors. We are proud to be a part of a program that can stimulate a life-long love for reading and learning.
