Our Campus Communities Are Our Communities

Wherever there’s a Rasmussen University campus, you’ll find us actively involved with the community. Whether dedicating time to local volunteer opportunities, donating meeting space to local organizations, hosting a virtual career fair that’s free to the public or serving as the hub for a neighborhood fundraiser, we believe in supporting the communities we serve.

Annual Community Service Day

For over 10 years, our national Community Service Day has focused the efforts of nearly 700 employees and students from 23 campuses. Through this achievement, staff and students volunteered more than 2,700 hours in a single 24-hour period.

Learning Center Opens

The opening of a new learning center in southwest Chicago—the Rasmussen University Centro de Aprendizaje (Learning Center)—expands local access to higher education. Providing computer workstations, as well as connectivity and academic coaching and advising to degree-seeking adult students and area high school students taking dual-credit courses at Rasmussen University, El Centro de Aprendizaje continues our mission of education for all.

Free, All-Access Virtual Career Fairs

Rasmussen University’s Virtual Career Fair features leading employers and career experts from a range of industries from across the country. Job seekers can also attend informative online career events, such as panel discussions, résumé consultations, mock interviews and networking sessions. The objective is to give all graduates and community members—not just our students—convenient access to real-time hiring professionals from the comfort of their own home or office.
