Seal for All In 2022 Most Engaged Campus for College Student VotingWe believe that being an engaged and informed citizen is important. At NECC, you can do this in several ways, including enrolling in service learning classes, volunteering at local organizations, or participating in civic engagement activities such as voter registration days, events regarding social justice, and more.

Civic engagement fosters a sense of community, develops self-awareness, practices problem solving, and widens worldviews. These experiences enhance applications for employment, college, and scholarships.
