Student MOVE (Mobilizing Outreach & Volunteer Efforts) is the student advisory board to the office of civic engagement. Since 1999, it has served as the student voice to administration for service initiatives happening on and off campus. Student MOVE serves as a resource to students and organizations for volunteer opportunities. Board members coordinate service programs and events that focus on direct service, education, and reflection. Students interview and apply to serve on the executive board
This year BVU students have come together to host a Dance Marathon for Children's Miracle Network. Student MOVE members are serving on this board. For more information contact Allie Mason or Kayla Lohse or go to their website.

Student MOVE models the Buena Vista University motto of Education for Service. We strengthen the connection between the Storm Lake and BVU communities by enhancing civic engagement and improving lives. MOVE generates opportunities for our students to grow and explore their hidden passions through character building experiences such as community-based learning, service opportunities, and advocating for social justice through student education. Our various service and leadership experiences provide BVU students with a profound pathway to self-discovery.
