John F. Kennedy University touches the Bay Area community and beyond. In keeping with our mission, we are recognized as a California Green Business, doing our part to protect the environment by recycling, preventing pollution, and conserving water, energy, and other materials.
Our College of Professional Studies provides affordable counseling services to area residents through our Counseling Centers in Pleasant Hill, Oakland, and Sunnyvale.
JFK University staff and students also volunteer their time and effort to support such community programs as the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano and STAND! Against Domestic Violence.
John F. Kennedy University collaborates with external partners across the spectrum to sponsor events such as the California Association of Museums Conference; travel/study courses to Costa Rica, Peru, and other national and international sites; a day-long conference on the mental health issues of the military serving in Afghanistan and Iraq; a holistic arts education conference; interdisciplinary research as part of the Educational Social Initiative; and workshops for people interested in starting and/or maintaining home-based or small businesses.
Public workshops, conferences, and symposia sponsored by the three colleges of John F. Kennedy University — along with the presence of our faculty at professional events, councils, and associations — extends the influence and impact of the University into the local community, across the nation, and around the world.
