OUCP’s Community Partnerships & Engagement unit oversees programs and initiatives that create and strengthen bridges between Rutgers-Newark and the Greater Newark community. The unit brokers partnerships that help faculty, staff, and students to plan and implement community-based research initiatives. The unit also helps to connect faculty and students with service opportunities with organizations in the Greater Newark community. Below is an overview of some of OUCP’s signature community partnership programs and initiatives.

Additionally, OUCP hosts an array of summer enrichment programs for the youth in the Greater Newark community. For more information, visit OUCP’s Summer Academy page.
