The New Neighbors School Success Service Project

The CRCC continues this important initiative with Drew University undergraduate students.

The current global refugee crisis poses one of the greatest challenges of our time.

Today, there are more refugees than at any time since WWII, and many of these refugees are children. In Syria alone, six years of conflict has kept nearly three million Syrian children out of school. While leading nations of the world struggle to address this refugee crisis, children around the globe are being deprived of a basic human right: education.

Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict, together with the Center for Civic Engagement, is leading an effort to help to address this need, collecting school supplies and offering English tutoring and homework support to our new neighbors!

Community-Oriented Policing: The Safer Communities Initiative.

“There is no better time than now for police and the communities they serve to come together, and there is no better way than to join hands in working together toward this common goal. We feel it is our duty to help these communities in any way we can, and we invite you to play a significant part in this effort.”—Jonathan Golden, Director, CRCC

As we at Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict have learned from our extensive local, regional and global peacebuilding work, with perseverance and sustained efforts involving effective methods and strategies, trust can be built and rebuilt. It begins with small steps and gestures aimed at demonstrating goodwill, as well as activities that encourage empathy and understanding.
