Leap Into Action Pledge

Open Opportunity



Join the University of La Verne in celebration as we kick off an exciting new chapter under the leadership of Dr. Pardis Mahdavi, our 19th president, and extend our core values, collective impact, and commitment to bridging educational excellence and innovation within the region and beyond.

Our goal is to get as many pledges as we can and at inauguration President Mahdavi will update the community on this initiative and share opportunities to extend our impact. 


Not a member of the university? No problem! We're trying to build connections and community. Whether volunteering your time or talents or providing an in-kind contribution, your commitment and action will: 

  • Bridge and strengthen your community
  • Deepen our commitment to further local, regional, and global relationships and impact
  • Build meaningful connections and help foster communities that are equitable, inclusive, and innovative. 

 Every act of service has the potential for a significant impact!

  • Select one or more causes that you are passionate about from the pledge form
  • Consider the following campus or local community partners OR search for community partners in your area:
  • Commit to engaging a minimum of one (1) hour volunteering your time or talent OR contributing through an in-kind donation(s) (e.g., gently used clothes, toys, canned goods)
