University Launches New Civic Engagement Website

Website offers a dynamic and up-to-the minute resource for finding civic engagement opportunities and connections

William Paterson University recently launched a new website dedicated to civic engagement. The website, located at the URL, offers a dynamic and up-to-the minute resource to help students, faculty, staff, community partners, and alumni in finding civic engagement opportunities and connections. It also highlights our growing accomplishments and features the many ways we are putting civic engagement into action every day at William Paterson.

At William Paterson, civic engagement is one of the core values that is inherent in our mission and our Strategic Plan. We are one of the founding members of Campus Compact New Jersey, the statewide affiliate of the national Campus Compact that promotes public and community service to develop students' citizenship skills. In addition, William Paterson is the first and only public college or university in New Jersey with a civic engagement requirement as part of our University Core Curriculum.

William Paterson University's commitment to civic engagement is demonstrated not only through our curriculum, but also through the wide range of co-curricular and extracurricular programs and activities that enable our students, faculty, and staff to get involved and make a difference in our community and far beyond.
