The Campus to Community Excursion
What goes into forming a community partnership that actually benefits students’ learning and meets the community’s needs?
On the excursion, you will meet community partners onsite at their agencies and hear their thoughts on navigating agency-faculty partnerships, preparing students for partnership and providing service, and mutually discovering the needs that will be served. See our brief video about a previous Excursion experience.
