"The Feinstein Institute introduced me to a type of service that allowed me to immerse myself within the surrounding communities and cultures, not only through direct service, but through different simulations and reflections that helped me better understand the world around me."
- Carmine Perrotti ‘11
The Feinstein Institute for Public Service is a campus-wide resource for all students, providing programs, courses, and opportunities for students to become active and engaged in the community. Students of all academic disciplines, class years, and interests are invited to participate in the Institute’s various opportunities for engagement:
Students serve as liaisons between community partners and students engaged in service-learning courses.
Community Work-Study is an opportunity for students with a federal work-study award to work at partnered community organizations and be paid through their work-study funding.
A student-led program in Providence and Pawtucket high schools, meant to cultivate a "college-going" culture for 9th and 10th grade students.
Travel, experience, reflection, and academic inquiry form the foundation of global service-learning experiences at Providence College. In a process that deepens learning and enhances either a Winter or Spring Break travel experience, students analyze and reflect upon travel and community engagement in a related course throughout the spring term.
