The services provided range from short-term activities like blood-drives with the Central California Blood Center and Kids Day benefiting Valley Children's Hospital to an average of 156 service-learning courses and long-term teaching internships with local school districts.

Fresno State's commitment to service contributed to the 2018 Washington Monthly, ranking the university as number 24 of the top 30 universities in the nation. In fact, Fresno State was ranked second in the percentage of work study allocated to community service placements.
