Who We Are

The Community-Academic Partners in Service (CAPS) Office is a branch of the Institute for Community Partnerships (ICP), serving as a central organization for Loma Linda University students, staff and faculty who are interested in serving and learning in the local San Bernardino community. We offer a variety of programs, such as music, tutoring and health education, to connect our university and alumni in partnerships with the community. CAPS also acts as a portal for community-based service organizations seeking university support. Our office encourages all forms of community engagement, including direct service, volunteering, service-learning, community-based research, philanthropy and advocacy.

Ultimately, we strive to continuously connect Loma Linda University and the local community through sustained partnerships that enhance student learning and address the needs of the community. We are empowering our community in collaboration with Him. Check out our service opportunities and sign up to be involved.
