Urban Plunge 2021, will take place on Thursday, August 26th through Saturday, August 28. This year, UP will be a hybrid program, virtual and in-person activities will be held.
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.
