College of Community and Public Affairs

Get Involved

Reach out, stay in touch

There are many ways to connect with the college as alumni. We want to hear from you, and hope to see you at the Downtown Center soon.

Visit

While the Downtown Center is an academic building, we also think of the site as a community center, and regularly host events and speaking engagements that are free and open to the public. We also can support and facilitate meetings and retreats.

Host an intern

At the undergraduate and master’s levels, we require our students to get out in the field as part of their education. The college partners with hundreds of organizations in the region, and our students possess the analytical, communication and professional skills that can bring value to your organization.

Mentor a student

The college offers a Community Connections Program where professionals are paired with University students for an opportunity to receive career guidance. We also serve as the local lead with the Matilda Cuomo Mentoring Initiative, facilitating one hour of mentoring per week to schoolchildren in Johnson City and Binghamton school districts.

Volunteer

The college can help connect community members to volunteer opportunities in several ways. You can partner with the Broome County Promise Zone and provide support to schoolchildren and families in need in your own community. Or, you can participate in our ongoing workshops that assist adults and non-traditional students with the tools to advance their professional development.

Contact the Dean’s Office  for general mentoring, networking and volunteer opportunities.

Contact the Career and Professional Services Office for information on programs/opportunities for you to give back to CCPA through professional outreach.
