As we continue to Celebrate CommUniversity, a significant part of the University’s mission is to help advance the state and nation through thoughtful public service. As part of the 119th Founders’ Day Celebration, Alabama State University will sponsor Hornet Nation Read & Rise Nationwide on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. This is just one way that we are extending the reach of CommUniversity, which is our word for reaching out to build relationships and partnerships in the community.

This is an excellent volunteer opportunity for the entire ASU family. If you’re interested, please complete the online registration by clicking on the following link:
