Find Your Pathway to Engagement

CE&I is charged with fostering an ecosystem of civic and community engagement for the College, community leaders, and stakeholders across Harlem and the city through innovative, inclusive, authentic, and lasting opportunities. CE&I seeks to inspire civic participation and a commitment to tackling critical social justice issues locally, nationally, and globally through four key principles: Community, Empowerment, Innovation, and Respect of sustained engagement and partnerships.
