Community Voices

Jennifer Geller

"I have been an Emergency Medical Technician for two years now and have been a member of the Morganville First Aid and Rescue Squad in Morganville, New Jersey for four years now. This summer, in particular, I spent over 150 hours serving my community as an EMT. Being a New Jersey EMT has contributed to making me who I am today and I have gained so much from my years of experience, from the actual medical skills to life skills about interacting with people who are both in the best and worst times of their lives." Jennifer Geller '20

Within Community Comes Unity

The Department of Community Service, with a slogan of "Within Community Comes Unity" is dedicated to providing students, faculty logoand staff with relevant volunteer experiences that match the needs of our neighbors, as well as the skills and interests of our student volunteers. The department seeks to establish sustainable and reciprocal partnerships with local social service, governmental, educational and cultural agencies as we advise and support community service initiatives. 

Our endeavors include fostering a community member who is civically engaged as an advocate, volunteer and educated citizen. We strive to embody the pillars of the university and core values of the Division of Student Life and Success through experiential service opportunities, collaboration with the academy and intentional reflection.

Student service outreach is done primarily through the Waltham Group, a student-led community service organization.
