To be a part of the Feinstein Institute, for me, means to partake in an organization that is committed to acknowledging injustice and actively empowering both individuals and communities to find solutions and to recognize their capacity to create change. Through developing relationships and fostering communities that try to combat resource inequalities, justice becomes increasingly attainable.
– Megan Socha ’19


The Feinstein Institute for Public Service is a campus-wide resource for all students, providing programs, courses, and opportunities for students to become active and engaged in the community. Students of all academic disciplines, class years, and interests are invited to participate in the Institute’s various opportunities for engagement:

Feinstein Fellows

Students are matched with community partners for a year-long community-based Fellowship.

Community Work-Study

Community Work-Study is an opportunity for students with a federal work-study award to work at partnered community organizations and be paid through their work-study funding.

Global Service-Learning

Travel, experience, reflection, and academic inquiry form the foundation of global service-learning experiences at Providence College. In a process that deepens learning and enhances either a Winter, Spring, or Summer Break travel experience, students analyze and reflect upon travel and community engagement in a related course throughout the fall, spring, or maymester terms.
