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.
