A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

Drew University helped to organize the first ever Madison Green Fair in 2010 and continues to be involved in this annual event. At the Green Fair students help work the University Table by giving away native ferns and promoting sustainability awareness in the community. The University also has a formal partnership with Morristown Neighborhood House, which is a settlement house for under-served immigrant communities. Drew's involvement in the Day Labor Community, a group of predominantly Hispanic men, promotes programmatic goals and fair treatment by offering English language course and technological guidance. The university also contributes to after school programs in the local area and Newark through Pathways to Work, Citizen Schools, and the Marion Bolden Student Center. Drew University also works with a variety of other non-profits by sending interns and students. Some of these non-profit programs are Homeless Solutions, Deirdras House, Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey, Furniture Assistant, Timeout Madison, and Jersey Battered Women Service.
