We are proud of our highly regarded community-engaged programs.

Through our community engagements, the College of Community and Public Service creates a dynamic learning environment for our students and empowers our community partners with quality research and data. Our accomplished faculty offers a wide range of expertise, including criminal justice, health administration, hospitality, human welfare, nonprofit management, public service, philanthropy, social justice, and tourism. Our Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy shapes usable knowledge for nonprofits, foundations, and others seeking to transform their communities for the public good.

We call ourselves an engaged College because we take the skills and talents of our faculty and staff and we work on projects in the community. We help to be a voice. We see ourselves as a college and a university, but we are part of the community and not separate from the community.  - Dean George Grant, Jr.
