Faculty and Service Learning

Service-learning engages students by helping them make critical connections between classroom lessons and real-world applications. It assists faculty in ensuring student learning outcomes as outlined in NYIT's core competencies. It also brings NYIT students into the community and the community into NYIT, so our students develop a sense of belonging and responsibility, and our communities view NYIT as a valuable asset and a viable community partner.

For program assistance on the New York City campus, contact Amy Bravo at and on the Old Westbury campus, contact Adrienne McNally at
