Through our work, service and expertise, the College of Community and Public Affairs is committed to being a vital part of community and economic development.

Take advantage of our expertise: We have a range of faculty knowledge that can be leveraged in the community via organizational needs assessments, strategic planning, collaborative grant writing and community interventions using cutting edge, evidence-based approaches.

Work with our talent: Internships are an integral component of the curriculum across our programs. The college leads Binghamton University in devoted hours to community internships, contributing more than 50,000 hours annually (and growing each year). Our local partners for internships include the Alzheimer’s Association, the Addiction Center of Broome County, the Rural Health Network, the United Way of Broome County, and local government offices, hospitals and schools.

We value being in Downtown Binghamton, and we believe the community is the lifeblood of the work we do. We encourage you to be our partners and to contact the college for more information.
