As a local college, Pierpont understands the importance of giving back to its community members. That is why it has launched Pierpont Serves.

On Monday, January 15, to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Pierpont will hold its first Day of Service event of 2024 by lending a hand to local businesses, including the Union Mission and United Way.
