Community service provides opportunities for faculty, staff and students to use their time, energy, skills and abilities to work with, for and on behalf of individuals in their communities. Although the primary goal of community service is to make a difference, many students have found that volunteer work expands their perspectives, broadens their understanding of community issues and creates practical applications of their education. While there is a multitude of ways to serve the community, NJCU offers a formalized program through The Center for Community Service and Volunteerism.
