Office of Civic Engagement

The Office of Civic Engagement connects Rutgers University–Camden to communities beyond the campus. Working with community partners, we support efforts to meet the challenges facing our host city, county, and region through engaged civic learning, volunteerism and service, community-based research, and integrated efforts and partnerships.

We are the starting point for Rutgers–Camden students, faculty, and staff who want to connect with our community partners and help to meet their needs. We are also the first point of contact for organizations, government agencies, schools, and others who believe working in partnership with Rutgers–Camden would help them reach their goals.


We strive to connect the resources of our campus with the needs and opportunities of communities by working with students, faculty, and staff to build partnerships that achieve common goals. Read more about Civic Learning initiatives, including our Civic Scholars program, Engaged Civic Learning, Faculty Fellows program, and the Graduate Fellows program.


Through our education outreach initiatives, we develop partnerships in Camden and the region that increase the academic achievement of students and provide a pathway to higher education. Learn about our K–12 education outreach, such as Rutgers–Camden Ignite, the Hill Family Center for College Access, North Camden Schools Partnership, and Rutgers Future Scholars.
