Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Connecting the college and community for the purpose of fulfilling a community need, developing a deeper sense of civic engagement and academic learning within our students—that’s community engagement! The Community Engagement Coordinator works with students, instructors, and community organizations to identify opportunities for partnership. By working together, Western can fulfill community needs, provide personal enrichment education (community education), and give students a deeper academic experience.
