The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

Social justice comes to fruition when the acquisition of knowledge and the practice of critical reflection culminate in civic action.  Our approach is nonpartisan, and our goal is to provide opportunities for meaningful engagement on campus and in our communities that will spark a lifelong commitment to participation in the democratic process.

We invite you to Engage. Educate. Elect.
