Urban Plunge is a pre-orientation program, run by the Center for Community Engaged Learning, for first-year undergraduate students who share a commitment to community service, reflection, and social justice. Students learn about the local community surrounding Fordham University by working together on community service projects and reflecting on their experiences. Urban Plunge also explores the culturally diverse neighborhoods, the different forms of art expressions throughout New York City and how they connect to social justice. You will begin to see New York in a way that even native New Yorkers do not often get to experience.
The Urban Plunge Program occurs on both the Rose Hill and the Lincoln Center campuses. Urban Plunge 2019 will take place on August 22, 23, and 24.
