Students, faculty and alumni at New York University are dedicated to making a difference in their community. We are guided by a key NYU tradition: being “a private university in the public service.”
The NYU Office of Civic Engagement (OCE) coordinates three types of programs to serve the community, outside of the many clinical and outreach programs conducted by NYU's leading professional schools.
OCE creates opportunities for students to enrich the lives of their fellow New Yorkers by serving with local non-profit organizations, public schools, city government, and civic groups. Learn about our volunteer, work-study, and paid employment programs »
OCE awards grants to local organizations, with programs that encourage civic participation amongst the NYU community and channel valuable support to our non-profit neighbors. Learn more about our grants and funding opportunities »
