Community Engagement

Community Engagement courses enable students to serve their community, pursue their educational experience beyond the College, and further their academic goals on a voluntary basis. For example, participants might volunteer for programs in schools, health-care facilities, community organizations for youth, wildlife services, and environmental projects.

Students wanting to register for Community Engagement must first meet with the Community Engagement instructor in the Work Experience Office. After selecting a nonprofit agency to work with, the student develops goals or objectives with the agency supervisor. At the end of the semester, the student writes a report that reflects upon the volunteer experience.
