Each year, students and staff members participate in our Plunge service week, during which they spend Spring Break completing a week of service with people in need.
The 2015 Plunge Service Week will take place January 11-17, 2015 at the Romero Center Ministries in Camden, NJ. Plungers will be immersed in the challenges and issues that confront persons living in America’s inner cities.
The 2014 Plunge Service Week took place March 15-21, 2014 in Haiti. Primarily, CNR Plungers volunteered with College Pierre Toussaint, the first complete secondary school in the Grand Anse province of Haiti.
The 2013 Plunge Service Week took place March 23-27, 2013 in the NYC areas hit by Hurricane Sandy. Plungers worked with various relief organizations including Habitat for Humanity of NYC and performed various tasks to facilitate cleanup efforts.
Our community service projects are an outward sign of The College of New Rochelle's continuing commitment to its heritage and mission, "respond to the needs of society." The Service Plunge is available for interested students in all four schools.
