USA is a committed neighbor. We recognize that engagement with the community enriches scholarship and research, enhances teaching and learning, prepares an engaged workforce, strengthens civic responsibility, and contributes to the public good. Launched in late 2017, the Office of Community Engagement fosters collaborations between the university and the community by increasing the capacity to develop and strengthen partnerships. It supports students in attaining opportunities for experiential learning through internships, service-learning, and volunteerism. It also connects community members to the many cultural, educational, research, and entertainment offerings of the campus, while supporting faculty and staff to develop profession al skills focused on improving community engagement.
