The Colin Powell Center for Leadership and Service at the City College of New York (CCNY) is a nonpartisan educational, training and research center named for one of CCNY's most distinguished graduates. Established in 1997, the Center prepares a new generation of publicly engaged leaders from populations previously underrepresented in public service and policy circles. The Center also seeks to build a strong culture of civic engagement at City College and to mobilize campus resources to meet pressing community needs and serve the public good. The Center focuses its efforts in the areas of community and economic development, education, the environment, health care, international development and human rights. The Center provides leadership, service and research opportunities for students; encourages faculty to apply their expertise to public problems; and fosters discussion of key challenges that affect communities in the United States and globally. The Center establishes reciprocal partnerships with a range of nonprofit organizations, government agencies, NGO's, think tanks and institutions of higher education to maximize the effectiveness of our programs.
