New Partnership to Benefit NJIT Students and Newark Community

Local nonprofit organizations in and around Newark will benefit from an increased number of NJIT students who volunteer technology assistance through a new partnership announced this week by the Division of Career Development Services’ Civic Engagement Computer Center (CECC) and the College of Computing Sciences’ Senior Capstone Course. “This partnership enables us to sustain an increased number of project teams needed to advance the work of the Center,” said Gregory Mass, Executive Director, Career Development Services. Through the Civic Engagement Computer Center @ NJIT, students work in project teams to design websites, databases, and other technical support projects for several community organizations including most recently the Newark Literacy Campaign and the NJ All-City Hoops. Students enrolled in the Senior Capstone Course will be assigned to the CECC to facilitate community-based projects for nonprofits.
