Community Organizations

A great way to become more involved and engaged during your time at Daemen is through involvement with cultural organizations in the WNY community. There are a host of different groups that provide opportunities for social, educational and spiritual growth outside of campus, allowing you to further explore your own culture, as well as learn about others that may be less familiar to you. Take advantage of what these groups have offer! Parades, social events, religious services and holiday observances to name a few. Additionally, there are opportunities to serve in leadership roles within these organizations; helping you to create relationships, network, celebrate and grow!

Check out the links below. If there is a particular community group that you are looking for but do not see, please feel free to stop by the new Center for Diversity and Inclusion in DS 115 or contact
