Niebuhr Service to Society Competition

The Niebuhr Service to Society Competition identifies and rewards prospective Elmhurst University students with significant interest in service to society as an aspect of their college search process.

Grounded in the University’s core values of community, social responsibility, and stewardship, we seek students motivated to transform their communities in line with the teachings of Reinhold Niebuhr and H. Richard Niebuhr.
