Welcome to Project Community

Project Community is a program within the Department of Sociology.  We are committed to student involvement in community service and social action, both to improve the lives of those in the community, as well as to enhance student learning and development.  By engaging in service and complementary active learning, students grow in social responsibility, develop critical thinking skills, assess personal values, and come to better understand themselves.  Students are primarily involved with individuals in the community who experience social inequalities, and learn with, from, and about them.

Program areas include: education • gender and sexuality • public health • criminal justice
