University Partnership: Clark University Dept of International Development, Community & Environment



City Year is proud to partner with Clark University IDCE so our alumni can continue to affect change in their communities, offering a minimum 40% tuition fellowship.


In the IDCE Department, students prepare to become agents of social change—locally, nationally, and internationally—in an increasingly interconnected world. IDCE is a community of scholars and practitioners dedicated to environmental sustainability, social justice, and economic well-being. We focus on major forces of social change: grass roots initiatives, social movements, government policy, market approaches, entrepreneurship, technological innovation, individual action, and education.
