The communities that surround Sarah Lawrence College—the cities and towns of Westchester County, New York City, the Hudson Valley, and the greater New York metropolitan area—are vital assets for the students, faculty, and staff of the College.

Sarah Lawrence serves our neighboring communities in a variety of ways. Our students, faculty, and staff are engaged with schools, advocacy and service organizations, and arts organizations, as well as local businesses.

We hope you will take advantage of the many resources described below and become a part of our extended College community.
