Community Service

Community leadership is a foundational principle at JWU, and community involvement is encouraged at all levels — by students, faculty and administration.

Serious about Service
Our students performed almost 155,000 hours of community service during the 2013-2014 academic year.

This includes undergraduate and graduate community service-learning, community service work study and nonprofit internships, as well as reported volunteerism through dorms, clubs and on an individual basis.

Feinstein Community Service Center
The Feinstein Community Service Center seeks to build bridges between your academic knowledge and the skills you need to solve real-world problems.

We integrate service-learning into curriculum. So our undergraduate and graduate students volunteer for projects benefiting about 25 local nonprofit organizations and schools each year as part of their degree program.

Service Awards
Our campus made the national President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll — and that’s just one of the many community service awards we’ve received.
