Community Engagement

Community Engagement is located in the SEAS Center in the Laboratory Building. We offer many opportunities for students to become involved with the community through service.

The misson of the Community Engagement Office is to be a driving and innovative force that advances our campus' committment to serving our surrounding communities and enables our students to engage in critical inquiry and hands-on service.
