Committee Chair: Tina Barrios '21

The Action committee is based on community service and plans large and small- scale volunteer events for Barnard students. McAC Action provides a wonderful opportunity to get involved on campus and make a difference in the lives of others.

Each year, the Action Committee organizes a Service Fair to help Barnard students learn about the different service opportunities that are available in the area. Some of the committee’s other past events have included making cards for veterans, voter registration with New York City Civic Engagement Program (NYCCEP), and making holiday ornaments for nursing homes. Action has also collaborated with JWOC (Jewish Women on Campus) to decorate bags for an afterschool program at the Women In Need homeless shelter, and co-hosted a standardized test prep book drive with Columbia FLiP (First Generation Low-Income Partnership).
