Community Partners: Get Involved

The Office of Civic Engagement strives to connect the resources and energy of Rutgers University–Camden with communities beyond our campus. Through our programs and initiatives, we support community-based collaborations on a variety of levels, from recruiting students in volunteerism, to providing long-term service internships, to engaging faculty in applying their expertise and experience to civic engagement.
