About Community Partners

Partnerships are vital to the success of our campus and our community. We view community partners as co-educators in our students' college experience. Community partners provide "real life" experiences for our students that increase the relevance of what students are learning in their classrooms. Community partners gain access to academic expertise through service-learning projects and help provide an important perspective in our students' civic development. Students provide needed services and staffing to local schools and non-profit organizations.

We invite community partners to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with our office. Let's work together to build a stronger community!

Ways to Partner

There are many ways that community partners can collaborate with the Office of Community Engagement. To propose an idea for a partnership, please complete the project proposal form (coming soon...).

One-time Community Service Project

One-time community service projects are opportunities for students with busy schedules to serve or for those wanting to check out various organizations. One-time community service projects require very little training. These projects are often good for groups such as our clubs, who are looking for community service opportunities. Examples of one-time service projects include event set-ups, serving for special events, ditch clean-up, or staffing children's activities for an event.

Ongoing Community Service Project

Ongoing community service projects require an ongoing commitment from volunteers. These projects tend to be best suited for individuals or a larger group that can send over a few of its members at regularly schedule times. Training is often required. Examples of some ongoing community service projects include the Senior Student Surf Connection at Summit Apartments, tutoring in after school programs, or working at a local therapy farm.
