Welcome to the
Office of Leadership and Service-Learning!



About the LSL:

The Office for Leadership and Service-Learning at East Carolina University, in partnership with local, regional, and international communities, seeks to foster an environment where individuals learn about themselves and their community, take action through service, and advocate for lasting social change. We believe that leadership is a relational process of inspiring, empowering and influencing positive change.

Our team assists campus volunteers and service-learning students with finding community partners and promoting learning through service.  ECU faculty and community partners are also supported by the LSL as they work with leaders, volunteers and service-learning students to address community needs.


Getting Started:

All students must register before participating in service to be covered by the university's Volunteers Insurance Service policy.

  • Click the green Join Now button in the upper right-hand corner to join the Leadership and Service-Learning portal.
    • Note: If the Join Now button does not appear, you have already joined the LSL portal!
  • Read and agree to the terms of the Assumption of Risk form.


Recording Service Hours:

1. Search for and join the portal of the organization where you will be serving.

  • Note: If your organization does not have an OrgSync portal in the ECU Community you can record your hours in the LSL portal.

2. Option #1 - Existing Service Opportunities

  • Sign up for an event posted on the Service Opportunities list.
  • Your community partner will add your hours after your service is completed.
  • Follow up with your community partner with any questions about your service hours.

3. Option #2 - Self-Initiated Service Experiences

  • Find an organization's contact information in the Profile tab of their portal.
  • Contact the community partner to establish goals and expectations for your service experience.
  • Once approved by your community partner, complete your service experience.
  • In the community partner's portal, click Involvement (you may need to click More - Involvement) and complete the Involvement Entry form. Be sure to include the Reference fields so your service hours can be approved!
    • Note: OrgSync will automatically send an email to your Reference when you submit service hours. Your Reference does not need to have an OrgSync account to approve your hours, but your Reference person will only receive notification that your hours have been entered if you complete the Reference section of the Involvement Entry form.
  • If your community partner does not have an OrgSync portal, you may enter the hours in the LSL portal using the same instructions outlined in the above bullet.
  • Follow up with your community partner with any questions about your service hours.


We hope you'll browse through the many ongoing and one-time service activities listed on OrgSync and consider getting involved!
