The New York City Civic Engagement Program (“NYCCEP”) at Barnard College was founded in 2003 and has been training, educating, and connecting our students to methods of creating a social impact ever since.

NYCCEP’s initiatives continue the activities of faculty, academic and administrative departments and Barnard Career Development in helping students engage with New York City.  NYCCEP’s goals are to facilitate these ongoing activities and create new opportunities for greater engagement between Barnard College and the local community, as well as to develop ways for Barnard to use its existing resources to address community-defined issues and concerns.
