The College of Community and Public Affairs (CCPA) provides an outstanding education for undergraduate and graduate students interested in careers in the public and non-profit sector.  Our students are passionate about engaging in the most meaningful work there is to improve the lives of individuals, families, organizations and communities. 

Students in CCPA are committed to service informed by evidence – a combination that fulfills CCPA’s mission of positively impacting the world through interdisciplinary, local and global perspectives. I’m enormously proud of how our students, faculty and staff live up to CCPA’s mission of solving complex problems to build more just communities for all. 

Our research endeavors help people in our local community and across the nation and the globe, and our graduates pursue a variety of careers and career paths.  They have gone on to be teachers, social workers, physicians, attorneys, high-ranking officials in government and higher education, and business leaders. Wherever they go, our students reflect Binghamton University’s commitment to excellence and high standards and the dedication to effective public service that is central to CCPA.

If you’re not already at CCPA, we welcome you to join us and be part of the remarkable sense of community that is nurtured here, as we build a better world together at the College of Community and Public Affairs.
