Center for Community Engagement

The UMW Center for Community Engagement works to create a culture of community engagement at UMW by providing structural support for civic engagement, volunteerism, and service, and by celebrating the work in the community done by all members of UMW, including faculty, staff, and students.

The Center works with community members to support effective, respectful, community-driven, reciprocal partnerships to meet societal needs. These partnerships will have measurable, beneficial outcomes both for our community partners and our students.

The Center for Community Engagement works to provide enhanced learning opportunities for students and help them apply their knowledge and skills to complex problems in new environments and settings. The Center also works with faculty to cultivate and support opportunities for community engagement including community-engaged pedagogy and research.
