How to Get Involved
The Powell Center aims to provide all CCNY students, regardless of academic major or discipline, with the opportunity to engage in service-learning during the course of their undergraduate career.
To this end, we provide technical assistance and financial support for faculty so that they may incorporate service learning into new or existing courses. And we support student leadership in service-learning through the following programs. Follow the links to learn more:

The Community Engagement Fellowship Program (faculty/student partnerships in service) Read On
Students can also be a driving force in advocating for additional service-learning opportunities on campus by:
- Asking faculty or department chair about designing a service-learning project as a in independent study or fourth credit option.
- Informing faculty about the types of support they can receive from the Powell Center in developing a service-learning course (e.g. Faculty Fellowships, Service-Learning Grants for project expenses, Course Assistant Grants etc.) Read On
- Talking to the chair of your department about applying for the Center's Public Service Planning and Development Grant.
