BearPulse (Powered by GivePulse)

Bear Pulse Logo
BearPulse is an online platform that enables students to track their campus involvement and service to the community. 

Why should I use BearPulse?

It’s a great way to connect with other students with similar interests and find volunteer opportunities in the community. You can search for nonprofits in your area, student organizations, register for events and service opportunities, and track your on-campus activities, leadership positions, and service hours.

The more you use BearPulse, the more useful it becomes. Every time you register for an event or log service hours in BearPulse, the platform automatically adds that information to your history. You can pull up a quick summary, sort of like a resume of your campus and community involvement, by clicking on your name in the top right corner and selecting “summary” from the dropdown menu.
