The Rochester Center for Community Leadership (RCCL) educates students to become engaged citizens and leaders capable of effecting positive social change in their communities. Through sustainable university and community partnerships, the Center develops initiatives that cultivate the skills, experiences and resources necessary to achieve innovative solutions to complex societal issues.
Founded in 1979, Mt. Hope Family Center is dedicated to helping children and families improve their lives. Through treatment, prevention, research and training in the areas of human development, child maltreatment and mental disorders in children and families, we provide the resources parents and children need to build strong, healthy family and peer relationships.
The mission of the Center for Community Health is to join forces with the community to eliminate disparities and improve health through research, education and service. The Center was established by the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) to develop and expand academic-community health partnerships dedicated to improving the health of our community. It represents a new model of institutional commitment to community health that focuses on prevention.
In a pivotal “match making” role, the Center connects URMC faculty, students and staff with community partners. Our shared goals are to increase community services and community-based research to improve health one person, one program, and one policy at a time.
