Neumont University Says Service is No Joke
Salt Lake City, April 1, 2016--Neumont University, a private institution that grants bachelor's degrees in computer science and related fields in three years, kicks off April with a service project assisting in the donations warehouse at The Road Home in Salt Lake City, Utah.
"When I joined Neumont University last summer the school already had one of the top computer science program's in the country," said Shaun McAlmont, Neumont University president. "We're all very proud of the university's students' and our alumni's achievements. But we want to be more. We want to be a force for good in the community as well."
McAlmont encouraged the staff leadership and faculty to look for ways to serve in the community. Since Neumont students attend school year round, organized service opportunities would need to take place in between breaks so as many staff and faculty could participate as possible. Last fall Neumont helped Utahns Against Hunger. This year at The Road Home shelter, Neumont participants helped unpack, sort and organize donations that come in the form of clothing, supplies and other goods.
"There are plenty of ways to serve in this community." McAlmont continued, "And I'm proud of our team for making service a priority."
