About the Office of Community Engagement
Community engagement refers to the concept of intentionally pursuing partnerships aimed at producing mutually beneficial outcomes. Ultimately, this work is intended to be responsive to the needs of the community and result in civic-minded approaches.
As a campus, we want to continue enriching our curriculum, research, service learning, and internship experiences in ways that bring the students, faculty, and staff together with the community to apply scholarly and service efforts to address real problems and explore the enormous opportunities in our region. The Office of Community Engagement promotes community-engaged teaching, learning, research, and service. It is our goal to help students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community to connect, collaborate, and partner.
The staff of the Office of Community Engagement provides support to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members who seek to participate in a wide variety of community engagement activities, including service learning, volunteerism, community-engaged research, community-engaged internships, and professional development.
