Through an education rooted in the liberal arts, St. John Fisher College prepares individuals for lives of intellectual, professional, and civic integrity, in which diversity and service to others are valued and practiced.
- Fisher's Community Service Office, housed in Campus Ministry, provides and promotes a variety of community service activities that appeal to all members of the Fisher family. Both the Service Scholars Program and the First-Generation Scholarship Program are managed by the Community Service Office.
- Community-Based Service-Learning addresses real community needs while enhancing the student learning experience within the classroom. Service-Learning cultivates each student's academic, civic, and professional development, meets the needs of community partners, and provides opportunities for faculty growth and development.
- The measure of a community is the sum of what its citizens give back in terms of their time, talent, and heart. The Center for Community Engagement (CCE), a collaboration among the City of Rochester, The United Way, and St. John Fisher College, was created to increase this sum for the greater Rochester area.
