Check out all of the programs we offer to you, including Extended Barnard Reach Out, MLK Legacy Week, and Action Academy


NYCCEP regularly partners with faculty to connect academic coursework with experiential learning. Contact us to learn more about service learning, internships, and extra credit opportunities that can help your students to deeply engage with your course content. We can also assist you in identifying stellar guest speakers, developing in-class activities to explore social justice and civic engagement topics, and finding relevant readings and resources.


NYCCEP is always seeking alumnae to serve as speakers and trainers for our programs; it's a great way to connect directly with students! We often work with alumnae to publicize their service and internship opportunities to the campus community, and help them recruit our talented students. Get in touch today to learn more!


Our Methodology

We believe that true civic engagement must incorporate many different skill sets, worldviews, and tactics in order to be successful and adaptable to changing community needs. NYCCEP builds on the diverse expertise and experience of Barnard's student body and trains students in the following Pathways to Service:

  • Advocacy and Activism
  • Direct Services
  • Politics and Policy
  • Financial Stewardship
  • Research and Engaged Scholarship

Learn more about our Pathways to Service here.
