    Departmental Mission Statement


    The Office of Student and Community Engagement is dedicated to providing opportunities for students to become productive citizens through the creation of a vibrant, synergistic, learning based community. Through this community, we strive to create challenging programs and services, community partnerships, and student resources that contribute to the students’ intellectual, cultural, social, moral, ethical, and emotional growth and exploration while encourage self-governance. In doing so, we engage students in a wide and diverse range of pursuits within the University and the community that contributes to their foundation for a lifelong learning that will transform their lives and the lives of others. The educating of students to transform their aspirations and values into transforming our global community supports our institutional mission. We support and supplement our institutional mission through programs, resources, services, and a mutual-collegial relationship with campus offices to support students’ formal academic work.
