Office for Community Engagement

Office for Community Engagement


The Office for Community Engagement fosters partnerships through which direction, alignment, and commitment emerge. Our community and university collaborations cultivate mutually beneficial opportunities that employ assets, promote collective ownership and action, generate new knowledge, and resolve community challenges. Through these partnerships, we enhance our capacity to prepare students to shape their lives, their professions, and their societies.
