Community Service

日本一本道a不卡免费Your service to Albertus Magnus College and the New Haven Community enriches your life in the Dominican tradition and the spirit of our namesake St. Albert the Great.

Whether you take on a formal internship for your major, earn funds for your education at a campus site through Albertus Magnus’ work-study program, or volunteer with an agency in the New Haven area for Campus Ministry, you’re growing, learning and working for the common good.
