Community Engagement

Community engagement facilitates the creativity and discovery that is essential to academic excellence. It also ensures that the University contributes to the vibrancy and sustainability of the communities that encompass it.

The Office of Community Engagement provides students, faculty and staff with authentic engagement opportunities that allow them to interact with the world around them.

Whether your goal is to partner with the University, conduct research, serve in the community or meet a curricular need, there are many opportunities to get involved and make a difference.

Please Note: There are new space usage restrictions due to COVID-19 guidelines

We are restricting all reservations for our meeting rooms to internal campus groups only.

Group size is limited to 20 or fewer people and social distancing is always required.

Face coverings or masks are required to be worn by all attendees consistent with the policy in all campus buildings.

All of our programs will be transitioned to virtual or online events for the Fall 2020 semester.
