Northwestern Community Development Corps (NCDC) is a student-run organization that seeks to engage students in community development at Northwestern University, in Evanston, and throughout Chicago. We promote civic engagement through direct service, social awareness, and advocacy. Utilizing existing skills, talents, and abilities, we strive to build mutually beneficial relationships, enriching both our campus and the communities, while forming a foundation for the future.
The Undergraduate Lecture Series on Race, Poverty and Inequality is a quarterly lecture series founded in 2002 that seeks to educate Northwestern students about public policy issues from a social justice standpoint.
The Advocacy portion of NCDC is currently focused on the Living Wage Campaign fighting to ensure that all campus workers earn adequate wages.
