We support community based-organizations in the fields of art and culture aimed at preservation and celebration. By honoring the histories and activism of communities that have been traditionally marginalized and underrepresented. Students are provided with numerous opportunities for community engagement by way of class based mural projects with non-profit organizations, art curriculum for youth, etc.
To confront mass incarceration as a defining social problem of the contemporary era, Pitzer College works with regional carceral institutions, local community partners, faculty, staff and students on a variety of projects related to education, public policy advocacy and re-entry services through the Inside-Out Prison Exchange program and beyond.
Pitzer students work with community-based organizations in the fields of health and environment to deepen understanding of health and environmental disparities in under-served populations. Opportunities for involvement include community gardens, health campaign, legislative actions, and researching/providing accessibility to wellness resources.
