Service Learning, Volunteerism and Community Engagement


The Office of Service Learning, Volunteerism & Community Engagement provides programming, resources, and support to promote a Rowan community of active citizens. We work collaboratively with university faculty and community partners to design a range of curricular and co-curricular service-learning opportunities. Students who engage with service learning, volunteerism and community engagement at Rowan will reflect on meaningful volunteer experiences as they develop a lifelong commitment to their communities.

Adopt a Family for Thanksgiving- It's that time of year again...we are adopting 75 families from Gloucester/Camden County area.

These families mostly consist of medium (4-5) and large (6-8) people in the families. Please see suggested items listing as well as what is expected with thes donations. Gift cards must be donated instead of a frozen turkey.

If you would like to adopt a family, please email to request a family size and you will be assigned a family number. Only non-perishables will be accepted. Please do not deliver items before Thursday, 11/20 as we do not have the space to accommodate such a big service project as this one.

All donations must be received by 4pm on Friday, 11/21

If you cannot adopt an entire family, why not just donate a few items on the food listing or donate a Shoprite or Acme giftcard.
