Service to Campus and Community

One mission of the Albert Dorman Honors College is to prepare leaders who are dedicated to the improvement of society. Students are encouraged to become proactive members of not only the NJIT community but also the surrounding Newark community.

Opportunities for community service are posted in the Albert Dorman Honors College Moodle course and can also be located through the Civic Engagement program at NJIT.

Requirements (effective Fall 2015*)

The Honors College asks students to perform 15+15 hours of community service per semester in order to maintain their standing as Honors scholars.

  • 15 hours (minimum) in service to the NJIT campus
  • 15 hours (minimum) in service to the greater Newark community or any approved off-campus service

Submitted hours should provide the supervisor's contact information listed appropriately.  (Agency supervisors hold the right to not approve hours that are completed in an unsatisfactory manner.)


* For the incoming Freshman class of 2019 and incoming accelerated students.  Current Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are encouraged to meet the new requirements but have the option to "opt-out". Instructions are provided in the Albert Dorman Honors College Moodle course.
