“…Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
These words from President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural speech in January 1961 live on at John F. Kennedy University. Since it’s founding in 1964, to honor President Kennedy’s commitment to education and community service, the University has been helping to advance the communities it serves.
Supporting its mission of “Education for Change,” John F. Kennedy University prepares students for success by ensuring their participation in impactful learning experiences connected to service, through internships, externships, clinical experience, fieldwork, and practicums embedded in many degree programs.
To provide all undergraduate and graduate students at the University with an opportunity to serve their community, the John F. Kennedy University Engaged program facilitates 30 hours of community service in the form of a project prior to graduation.
Grant funds, made possible through the generosity of private donors, are available to support John F. Kennedy University Engaged Service Learning Projects. These grants assist with project expenses, including materials, supplies, publicity, and recruitment/engagement.
For information about John F. Kennedy University Engaged, or if your community organization has a project that could benefit from the involvement of John F. Kennedy University students, please contact Service Learning Coordinator, Dr. Sheila B. Duffy at 925.969.3346 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
