Collaborative Center for Community-Based Research and Service

The Collaborative Center for Community-Based Research and Service creates and supports opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to engage in community-based partnerships and public scholarship.

Students can contribute to their communities, learn how to work with diverse populations, and build lasting civic responsibility through the center's signature courses and programs.

The Collaborative Center also supports faculty and staff who are or would like to be involved in community-engaged teaching and research.

The Ralph W. Voorhees Center for Civic Engagement is a collaboration of university faculty, students and community development actors that seeks to enhance educational opportunities, facilitate innovative research, and build community development capacity.

Faculty and students work in collaboration with local actors to conduct innovative original research, publish in peer review journals, and present research locally and at academic conferences.

The Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life  is committed to academic excellence, fostering scholarly exchange and faculty research, and providing educational programs for the community at large. The Center sponsors visiting scholars who teach and contribute to the intellectual life of the Rutgers community.  Working closely with the Department of Jewish Studies, it offers a wide range of programs for students and seminars for faculty. The Center connects the university with the community through its public lectures and symposia, Jewish communal initiatives, cultural events, and teacher training.
