Community Engagement

The Office of Public Engagement supports and facilitates a broad and diverse set of collaborative activities that link the University and its larger community (local, state, national, global) for the mutual benefit of both. Close alliances to the local community allow for strong partnerships between faculty, students and local organizations.
