5 Star Veterans Center
Jacksonville University has partnered with 5 Star Veterans Center on numerous projects throughout the years. Most recently, JU served the organization at the 2015 Charter Day of Service providing food for their veterans and landscaping necessities such as mulching and fence painting. Our partnership with 5 Star Veterans Center is an example of the commitment JU makes each day to the Military Veteran community of Jacksonville.
Duval County Public Schools
Jacksonville University serves a variety of needs for Duval County Public Schools. Most notably, JU School of Education students work directly in classrooms to impact the lives of elementary school students in the Arlington Community. Dolphin Athletic teams support the schools through readership programs and other service projects. Like the 5 Star Veterans Center, DCPS is heavily involved as a project facilitator for JU’s Charter Day of Service.
