Community Fellows Program

Community Fellows

The Community Fellows program is a unique partnership between Vassar College and local non-profit and governmental agencies in Dutchess County and Nashville, TN (thanks to the generosity of an alumna) that brings a unique learning opportunity to Vassar students while building capacity for community organizations.

The Community Fellows Program upholds the college’s mission by engaging students and community partners in the following ways:

  1. Providing students with an opportunity to experience meaningful work in non-profit and governmental sectors
  2. Supporting capacity building with community partners by responding to community needs
  3. Investing in the future of our community through public scholarship and civic engagement
  4. Enhancing the relevance of a liberal arts education to a purposeful life
