Siena SPin Fellow, Kathleen Nielson, helps a community to blossom again!

Siena SPIn Fellow was recently interviewed about her work on a community corner in Albany.

Siena’s Center for Academic Community Engagement (ACE) is built on community-engaged learning. Saints who participate in ACE programs have the opportunity to enhance their academic experiences by getting out of the classroom and into the world.

Through any of our nine programs, current students and postgraduates have the opportunity to build meaningful long-term relationships with nonprofit partners in the Capital Region. ACE members actively engage with the community by participating in both direct and indirect service, providing them experience with real-world issues such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, and social injustice.
