About Community Outreach

Our Purpose 

We work to connect students to their neighboring communities in order to cultivate an awareness of community needs. In our office, students become civically engaged either through individual volunteerism, organizational involvement, events and opportunities that give students a valuable out-of-classroom experience, as well as provide opportunities to build their social capital. Community Outreach and Service Learning will also help students generate their own service and advocacy projects. 

Yearly Events: Hunger and homelessness awareness workshops, Oxfam Hunger Banquets, Treats for Troops campaign. The office also maintains partnerships with organizations such as the Center for Court Innovation, New York Cares, Safe Horizon, Just Food, St. Paul the Apostle’s Soup Kitchen, and many otherss.
