Community Service at Caldwell College

By | September 5, 2019


Hi I’m Nancy Blattner. As President of
Caldwell College, one of my great joys is to share service experiences with
student that might mean leading a trip to Belize, to build a church in a jungle
village, or working at the local food pantry during freshman orientation.
Service is one of the Catholic Dominican pillars here at Caldwell and all
throughout the year we give students opportunities to volunteer while getting
to know other students. In the fall, we hold our annual Caldwell
Day where classes are canceled and students, faculty, and staff can choose to
engage in community service at non-profit organizations. During the academic year,
our Student Activities, Volunteer Outreach and Campus Ministry offices
lead students in a number of projects. They reach out to the homeless in New
York City through midnight runs, tutor young people, serve the elderly, rebuild
substandard housing in Appalachia and much more. Our NCAA Division-II student-athletes
enjoy community engagement by holding clinics for local children, cleaning up
the area parks, and planning fundraisers. If you are a current student, please join
us in one of these volunteer events. You’ll have a great time. And if you’re
considering Caldwell, please stop by and visit us and learn more about the
Dominican Spirit of Service that really makes Caldwell College a very special place.
