“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up in mine, then let us work together.”
— Lilla Watson

Throughout the year the university accepts proposals from the community that seek to partner with university faculty and students to solve authentic community-issues. Our philosophy is that these proposals should be community-driven, meaningful, and multidisciplinary to encourage students to approach problem-solving from multiple perspectives.

Community Partner Fair

On Tuesday, September 27th, the Center of Community Engagement will be hosting a Community Partner Fair to connect students, faculty, and staff with opportunities for engagement with local organizations.

Collaboratory

Community engagement takes many forms. In 2020, the CCE implemented a new software called Collaboratory that was created by the University of North Carolina Greensboro specifically to capture the various forms of community engagement and public service that often takes place in higher education. Training of the site is ongoing, but this will allow our community, faculty, staff and students to see the amazing collaborations and activities that are happening!
