A Community That Cares

At the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, our students pursue service programs that better our community, which impacts the world as a whole.

The Rutgers Against Hunger initiative, which works to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from hunger, has inspired the student-organized Rutgers Against Hunger. Food drives, 4-H programs, grocery shopping advice, and agricultural research are a few of the ways that we bring nutrition to those in need. The New Brunswick Community Farmers Market strives to support development of a sustainable community by making locally-grown healthy food accessible to families across the city. Our honors/service co-ed fraternity, Alpha Zeta, prepares individuals for lifelong learning, discovery, and service to society.

From raising dog guides for the visually impaired through the Rutgers University Seeing Eye Puppy Raising Club to serving as volunteer hosts of Monster Mash, the annual trick-or-treating alternative to Halloween for local kids, our students engage with the world around them and add value to their campus experience. Service requires no special talent or ability beyond the willingness to contribute to the wellbeing of the SEBS community and beyond.

Join us in our endeavor to create a better world through service.
