The more we connect with others, the stronger community we build.
Colleges and universities are good neighbors, providing a number of outreach services and volunteers to assist local residents in a myriad of ways. Although our principal focus is teaching and research, we enhance community life, promote economic opportunity, and improve health and safety.
New York’s private, not-for-profit campuses are strong providers of assistance in rural, urban and suburban areas, with a depth and breadth of programming that spans service, health, social, environment, civic, historic preservation and re-development, arts, technology and economic development.
Our students and staff are reaching out doing good works, providing nourishing meals, giving a day of service, and helping to build affordable houses, as well as other important social and community programs.
