We know that Nazareth students are justice-seekers. They see inequities in the world and want to do something about them. The Weider Community Engagement Office is a mechanism for students to do that work, to find their places to engage, to understand their power to be changemakers.

Working together with community partners we know that our students can and are contributing to the vision of a just and equitable society. We work to prepare and inspire courageous changemakers for their life’s work through taking civic action, pursuing social justice and promoting activism.

Nazareth is nationally recognized for leading the way for colleges engaged with the community.
