Students Get Involved with CCEL

At the Center for Community Engaged Learning, students join together with members of the Fordham community and our friends and neighbors at home in New York, across the country, and abroad to learn and grow. Community engaged learning courses provide an innovative approach to experiential education that harnesses the assets of the Fordham faculty in tandem with civic leaders, nonprofits, community groups, and partner institutions. The center fosters student leadership through extracurricular initiatives like Global Outreach and Urban Plunge, in which students develop and mobilize a robust understanding of community partnership through immersive experiences. The College Access program enlists students to serve as ambassadors to middle school and high school students on the path to postsecondary education. And our Emerging Student Leadership Academy gives students the tools to take academic, preprofessional, and personal challenges in a dynamic and rapidly shifting world.

Opportunities to Get Involved

At Fordham, we embrace our mission to care for the whole student. The center offers a cadre of extracurricular programming that bolsters the development of each Fordham student through a thoughtful presence in our own communities and in the communities around us. Join us for a Global Outreach project, become an Urban Plunge assistant or captain, lead a College Access tour, and unlock your potential as a participant in the Emerging Student Leadership Academy.
