The Office of Civic Engagement supports faculty across disciplines as they integrate community engagement and service to activate the liberal arts.

Civic Engagement Across the Curriculum

The Certificate in Civic and Global Leadership

The Civic and Global Leadership Certificate offers two tracks of academic study and credit designed to complement students’ academic year or summer civic engagement internships. Combining community development theory and practice with an interdisciplinary approach, the certificate culminates in an applied capstone, enhancing students’ work for social good.

Civic Engagement Faculty Fellowships

Civic Engagement Faculty Fellows develop courses and research opportunities that enhance students’ learning through community engagement. The fellows participate in workshops and personalized advising to build connections with community partners and craft course offerings that link classroom learning with hands on experiences in the community that promote social good.

The Community-Engaged Learning Program

The Community-Engaged Learning program offers academic courses across the curriculum with a community engagement component. Each course integrates community engagement and service to activate the liberal arts. Students can search the schedule of classes for courses with "Community Engagement" in the description.
