Local, National and International Service Projects
A grass roots effort led by faculty, staff and students supported the resettlement of 2 refugee families over the past 2 years. Our families came from Eritrea, a country located in northeast Africa. Originally relocated in Allentown and Easton, some have now moved on to various locations within the US safely settling in with family and friends.
Generous grant funding from the Voter Campus Friendly Initiative supported two Democratic Fellows, one in Bethlehem and one at Monroe. The NCC student/fellows created and promoted student voter engagement activities, registering over 450 new voters.
Through a generous endowment allocated to the Center, student groups can apply for competitive grant dollars that support a service project of their choice.
Students have served as research assistants and videographers for David Good’s non-profit, “The Good Project.”
Reflection sessions provide students, staff and faculty the opportunity to engage in civil discourse about timely and sometimes controversial topics. These conversations occur in the Center, facilitated by staff in a safe, caring and accepting environment for all.
