The Herd is not only passionate about the CU community, but it’s also passionate about the Boulder Community, and the global community. The Herd strives to give back to these various communities through community service, charity events and volunteering. Find out more about our community service events here. In the fall our main event that gives back to the community is The Nearly Naked Mile. During the spring semester we host a St. Baldrick’s Day for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and we put on CU Idol, a singing competition that allows the winners to give back to other student groups.

The Herd also maintains a volunteer-based planning council, called The Herd Leadership Council. Between 15 and 20 students from CU volunteer their time and effort to plan all of the events that The Herd presents around campus. Herd Leaders gain valuable experience in event planning, communication, marketing, networking and leadership. Another advantage to being on the Herd Leadership Council is the lasting friendships as well as valuable alumni connections. Find more information on becoming a Herd Leader here.
