Community Service @ Stern is an integral part of life at Stern. The Community Service Committee serves as a resource for students to leverage when initiating their service ideas and provides a hub of opportunities to engage with the community. Stern's location in New York City puts students within an arm's reach of many organizations and creative ways to give back to the community. Below are just a few examples of the creative approaches that our students have taken.
Stern Sandy Relief Effort - Long Beach, NY
Each fall, students in full-time blocks and part-time core groups compete with other blocks and core groups to raise money and food donations for the holidays.
Dress for Success
Stern Women in Business (SWIB) works with NYU Law School students to collect suits and other professional clothing from NYU students. The clothing is then donated to the Dress for Success organization, which provides business attire to low-income women seeking employment.
Stern Charity Poker Event
In February, students compete in a poker tournament for charity. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a charity of choice.
Washington Square Park Cleanup
During the fall, students, faculty and administrators across NYU unite to clean up Washington Square Park.
