The Feinstein Institute for Public Service is comprised of faculty, staff, students, and community partners who engage in thoughtful reflection and dialogue with the shared goal of working to strengthen local communities. By working together, the Institute and its partners can provide quality service experiences for students and valuable benefits for local communities. On campus, the Institute supports academic departments and individual faculty members who want to integrate community and civic engagement into their curriculum, through local and global service-learning courses. The Institute also coordinates several programs, including Community Work-Study, which allows students with a federal work-study award to work at community organizations and the EXPLORE! program, which promotes awareness of, access to, and readiness for college and career among first-generation high school students. Off campus, the Institute helps the College to manage the PC/Smith Hill Annex, a 1,500 square-foot storefront in the local neighborhood used by PC and neighborhood residents for meetings, programs, events and gatherings that build leadership capacity and strengthen community.
