Civic Learning

The Office of Civic Engagement at Rutgers University–Camden strives to connect the resources of our campus with the needs and opportunities of communities here in our host city, throughout the state of New Jersey, and beyond.

Building Partnerships to Advance the Community

Working with students, faculty, and staff across all of the schools on our campus, we build partnerships that achieve community goals while advancing the teaching and research mission of the university.

Our work supports community development in areas such as early childhood and K–12 education, health, nutrition, economic vitality, financial independence, and environmental improvement. We are committed to advancing community objectives while developing the next generation of engaged citizens and leaders.
