Service is a large part of the culture here at Fisher. Get involved and you will connect with the Greater Rochester community and form stronger bonds with your fellow classmates.

From college-sponsored service trips to student-led service activities, the underlying thread is this: Your experience interacting with others in the larger community prepares you for real-world accomplishment. And it feels good, too.

A Culture of Service

The College has forged partnerships with more than 60 non-profit organizations and schools in the Greater Rochester region, and on any day of the week, students, faculty, and staff can be found sorting and distributing food at Food Link, reading to children at the Bethany House, building affordable housing through Habitat for Humanity, or weeding, mulching, and raking the grounds of Mount Hope Cemetery.

President's Honor Roll Recognition 

St. John Fisher College is regularly named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, which recognizes the nation's leading colleges and universities for their commitment to bettering their communities through community service and service-learning.

The Honor Roll recognition is given to institutions that demonstrate relevant and meaningful service and achieve measurable impacts in the community, particularly activities that address education, health, economic opportunity, the environment, disaster preparedness, or other human needs including support for veterans and military families.

"Fisher is nationally recognized on a regular basis for service. It's very big here on campus."
