The Office of Service-Learning and Community Engagement seeks to develop well-(g)rounded graduates through deepening social awareness and responsibility, and nurturing them to be effective contributors in society.
Before embarking on their community engagement journey, students strengthen their understanding of community engagement through learning the foundation. Students can choose from a diverse range of project types to engage with the community, balancing their interests and level of commitment while contributing to the social good. To better engage communities, programmes and initiatives have been curated to help develop capabilities in students and other key stakeholders of the community engagement landscape.
Community Engagement is an educational experience through which students learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully-organised service experiences that meet actual community needs and that are coordinated in collaboration with the university and community. It creates a connection between the university and the community that facilitates unique cross-sector collaboration and shared resources that help to enhance society’s well-being. Through community engagement, you invite community partners to become your co-educators to guide you in your journey of growth to become leaders in society.
