Publication Praises Marist's Commitment to Civic Engagement

ccel  The Princeton Review has included Marist College in a select list of 50 schools
  nationwide that provide students with outstanding experiences in leadership
  development, community service, and pre-professional experiences. Written by
  Senior Vice President-Publisher Robert Franek, Colleges That Create Futures
  highlights the many opportunities for service learning provided to students, both
  on and off campus. While the profile explores many aspects of the College, it
  draws particular attention to the CCEL's Marie and Rupert Tarver Summer
  Internship Program
: "Through the internship, students learn how to develop
  actionable plans, coordinate resources, measure effects, and present their results
  to the campus community." Because the Tarver Program provides a substantial stipend
  and free housing for the summer, it gives students "a more realistic idea of what
  full-time project coordination and development feel like, and it helps them develop
  follow-through skills while granting them a sense of project ownership." As the
  activities of Summer 2015 Tarver Interns make clear, the program and other CCEL
  offerings enable students in any major to connect their academic coursework
  to service and citizenship within the community beyond campus.
