About the Center for Community Engaged Learning

Fordham students walking on campus.


To facilitate experiences for Fordham undergraduates in a way that advances the University’s community-engaged learning (CEL) goals and that situates Fordham as a more effective catalyst for change and a more committed partner among communities both in New York and around the globe.


By building a web of interconnection between the CEL programs of Fordham University and the needs/assets of community partners, the center will positively transform our University and our communities.

Program Statement

Rooted in a faith that does justice, the Fordham Center for Community Engaged Learning partners with local, national, and global community organizations whose members and clients serve as co-educators for Fordham students. Informed by and in conversation with the Jesuit and Catholic social traditions, the center facilitates community-based learning opportunities that underscore commitments to the common good, universal human dignity, justice as participation, anti-racism, and solidarity with marginalized communities.
