Center for Community Engaged Learning

Students volunteering time to help kids

The Center for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL) is a new initiative that builds on Fordham’s tradition for engagement by coalescing the work of the Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice and Global Outreach, while building a system for integrating faculty teaching and research. The center provides Fordham students with opportunities to learn with and from our local and global community partners and to incorporate scholarly research into community-based collaborations.

Through communal engagement at the local, national, and international levels, CCEL facilitates Fordham’s mission as a Jesuit, Catholic, and New York City entity of higher learning. In providing opportunities such as Urban Plunge, Service Learning, and Global Outreach, and by developing students’ capacity as scholars and civic leaders, the Center for Community Engaged Learning cultivates relationships of mutual and perpetual benefit in New York City, throughout the United States, and around the world.
