Start the academic year off by doing some good at one of the many service projects available on and off campus.
The Center for Community Engagement and Volunteer Center host an annual service event to honor and remember the victims and first responders of the September 11 tragedy. This service event has had on average 350 students, faculty, alumni and local community members serve on campus, in the Montclair community, and in its surrounding areas. Together students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members have contributed more than 10,000 volunteer hours.
Our 9/11 Day of Service on Saturday September 9th 2023 was a great success. There were nearly 400 volunteers who served with over 20 sites. We also had a service fair where students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members were able to learn about some of our partnered organizations! Thank you to those that participated. We will see you next year!
