Community Partners

Community Partners: Share Your Available Opportunities

The Center for Community Engagement creates and sustains partnerships with local and regional agencies for curricular and co-curricular engagement.  These collaborative partnerships prepare our students to be engaged and productive members of society, who make civic-minded decisions and contribute innovative solutions that address the complex social, health, economic, scientific, and civic issues of our time.

There are many ways to engage with our campus community and to share your different types of opportunities with our students. Participation will vary based on student interest, requirements, and availability.  If you would like to share your opportunities with us, please click on the appropriate type of opportunity below:

Tips & Guidelines for Working with Students

Working with our students can be very rewarding. Our students are always learning and the service-learning experiences allows them to learn by doing, as well as, developing an understanding of community-based work and social responsiblity. You can help them be successful in their service-learning/volunteer placements by:
  • Orienting students to the organization’s mission, goals, and structure.
  • Provide an orientation that includes: site tour; staff introduction; description of risks/safety/emergency procedures associated with Site’s operations and/or clients; information on logging time/sign in-out.
  • Provide tasks that are significant and/or relevant.
  • Provide student with written description of tasks and responsibilities and appropriate training, materials and work areas.
  • Ensure a safe work environment and reasonable hours for students to perform service.
  • Meet with the student regularly to provide support, review progress on assigned tasks, verify service hours and give feedback.
  • Know who the faculty are and what courses the students are in.
  • Contact the CCE if the student fails to perform assigned tasks or engages in misconduct.
  • Notify the CCE as soon as is reasonably possible of any injury or illness to a student.
