Commitment to Service


Commitment to Service: Community Connections

At Le Moyne College, community engagement is a deeply embedded key component of our mission. The campus works collaboratively to provide cohesive programming that supports our Jesuit commitment to “educate men and women for others”. 

Since its founding (1946), Le Moyne has a tradition of supporting the local community. Its service culture is also strengthened by the various vehicles for service: alternative breaks; service clubs; Committee for Urban and Regional Applied Research; DIVE Days of Service; learning communities focused on service-learning; employees appointed to non-profit Boards; and, Community-Based Work-Study partnerships with local agencies.

In presenting transformational learning experiences through community engagement, Le Moyne College helps students to be prepared to demonstrate:

  • compassionate engagement in the world;
  • a commitment to lifelong service;
  • promotion of community spirit;
  • the ability to lead;
  • a refined moral understanding; and
  • a desire to promote a just society.

 

At its best, this site serves as a connector for collaboration between Le Moyne and the community (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.  The College works to provide various fulfilling and essential opportunities to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners.

If you are motivated to get involved in community engagement, you will find a variety of ways to serve the community.  For more information about our various community engagement programs, please contact:
