This paper presents the results of a survey about civil activism among graduate students of Social Sciences at the University of Zagreb. The study was conducted on a sample of 300 respondents in four faculties: Faculty of Special Education and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Centre for Croatian Studies and Faculty of Teacher Education. The aim of the study was to identify the ways students engage in civil activities, as well as the frequency and types of volunteering. Also, we wanted to identify their reasons for volunteering or non-volunteering, the link between socio-demographic characteristics and students' civil activism, as well as the atmosphere in terms of civil activism in the faculties. The results showed that half of the students had volunteered in some way in the previous 12 months. The same number of students were members of at least one non-profit organization. Donating money and food for charitable purposes and signing petitions were the prevalent remaining forms of the respondents' civil engagement.. The main reasons for volunteering for most of the respondents were of intrinsic-altruistic nature, while the most common reasons for the lack of involvement in volunteering were their curricular obligations and other activities. The hypotheses that respondents from different study groups and respondents with different political orientation differ by their inclination towards civil activism have been confirmed.
