About Us

The Center for Humanitarian Engagement was founded in 2018 as a result of the desire of students, faculty, and staff at Walla Walla University to raise the level of service on our campuses. The CHE embodies WWU’s core theme of Generosity in Service by providing impactful, sustainable ways for students to volunteer and serve their community and meet learning objectives through service. With a mission to connect with Christ through service, we are here to involve students in sharing God’s love with those around us.
