Volunteerism, Community Engagement & Commuter Services

VCECS Mission

The Office of Volunteerism, Community Engagement & Commuter Services (VCECS) provides programming, resources, and support to promote a Rowan community of active citizens. We work collaboratively with university faculty and community partners to design a range of curricular and co-curricular service-learning opportunities. Students who engage with volunteerism at Rowan University will reflect on meaningful volunteer experiences as they develop a lifelong commitment to their communities.

VCECS is also the frontline resource to foster, support, and sustain better relations among off-campus students and their neighbors by encouraging and supporting students to become active, responsible, and just members of the community and neighborhoods in which they live. Working in collaboration with community partners and Borough Administration, VCECS serves to foster non-disciplinary dialogue among students and community residents to respond to concerns presented by all varied constituencies.

In addition, VCECS serves as the lead provider for commuter student support services and works to establish a sense of inclusion in the Rowan community for commuter students.
