Community Engagement

Community Engagement
Community engagement refers to the process by which institutions, organizations, and businesses are beneficial to the community and individuals build sustainable relationships for the purpose of applying a collective vision for the community's wellness. Consistent with the University's strategic plan, The Division of Academic Outreach and Engagement, specifically the Center for Continuing and Professional Studies (CCPS) remains involved in a number of outreach initiatives. We are proud to announce new and ongoing community partners. Learn more about these partnership formations listed below.
