Office of Civic Engagement

Welcome to the Office of Civic Engagement! 

We serve the University’s civic mission by providing coordination and support for campus and community stakeholders, including:

  • Open and collaborative approaches to the development of mutually beneficial partnerships with the broader community.
  • Cohesive, meaningful community-based experiences based on both well-established and innovative approaches that lead new generations of increasingly diverse students to become civic-minded, engaged members of a democratic society.
  • Fostering the university’s civic and educational mission through creative, effective civic pedagogies that address issues of public importance, such as sustainability and social justice in a culturally diverse society.
  • Curricular and co-curricular activities, university policies and resource allocations that reflect our commitment to civic engagement, supported by a well-funded and sufficiently staffed Office of Civic Engagement.

Read more in the Office of Civic Engagement’s Strategic Plan.  Also, we are pleased that in the spring of 2016, Civic Engagement was added as a plank in the Strategic Plan of the University.

Civic Engagement includes many types of community and civic involvement.  Whatever way you engage, getting involved and taking your place in our democratic society is essential to making our communities, states, and nation work. 

We have opportunities for students, staff and faculty.  We invite you to join our work!
