Discover new opportunities for community involvement. Create a new service learning project. Partner with the campus on engaged civic opportunities.
As a public research university, Rutgers University–Camden provides opportunities to engage directly with the challenges facing Camden and the region. There are many ways you can get involved and make a difference.
Through academic courses and programs, along with co-curricular experiences, Rutgers–Camden students become active participants in making positive change. Along the way, our students build skills that will serve them well in their lives as professionals and as members of communities.
Through research, teaching, and collaborative projects, faculty and staff from across the campus play a key role in advancing civic engagement. The Office of Civic Engagement supports Rutgers–Camden faculty and staff in all aspects of civic engagement—conceiving courses, projects, and programs; connecting with community partners; locating resources; and meeting logistical challenges.
The Office of Civic Engagement can 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.
