Community Service

Community Service at Rutgers

At Rutgers University, we highly value community service and the experiences that students receive by participating in different community service initiatives. We seek to foster social responsibility and learning through community engagement and volunteer opportunities. We provide and support co-curricular opportunities which prepare students and inspire them to be active citizens, while inspiring them to be socially aware and civically involved in their communities.

Events include Scarlet Day of Service, Winter Wishes, Give Back New Brunswick, and more. The Council also acts as a resource for students and organizations to find and plan service initiatives.
