For more than 30 years, the David & Frances Brain Center for Community Engagement has upheld the University's mission of empowering students to become contributing, compassionate citizens of an increasingly global society. Formerly known as the Office of Community Outreach, the office was renamed in 2016 in recognition of the contributions of David and Frances Brain to support this on-going mission, allowing for an expansion of programs and resources.
The Center for Community Engagement offers a variety of ways for students to get involved and fulfill experiential learning requirements by serving at the local, national and international levels. Opportunities include one-time projects, weekly service, alternative breaks, international service, leadership positions and more. Students gain valuable experience in leadership roles as alternative spring break leaders, College Explorations coordinators, special projects team members, Super Saturday coordinators and coordinators for weekly programs.
