We Link Academic Resources with Community Needs 

Street view of the Center for Community Engagement

The Center was launched in 2004 to link academic resources with community needs. The Center coordinates and supports opportunities for faculty and students to learn from and with nonprofit organizations, rural communities, tribal communities, and other public partners in the state. It works with departments, faculty, and students across campus, coordinates activities with other units with relevant teaching, research, and service missions, and develops relationships with public and community partners.

The UND Center for Community Engagement connects faculty and students with the community through:

Experiential Learning Students apply their disciplinary knowledge as they serve communities and nonprofit organizations while learning civic responsibility. Service Learning is experiential learning for academic credit that combines community service with student learning.

Public Scholarship Scholarly and creative work in the public interest, scholarship planned and carried out in cooperation with community partners, and academic work that produces a "public good" such as exhibits, performances, and broadly accessible
research results.
