The purpose of community engagement is the partnership of college and university knowledge and resources with those of the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research and creative activity; enhance curriculum, teaching and learning; prepare educated, engaged citizens; strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility; address critical societal issues and contribute to the public good.

The community engagement council (CEC) is a faculty, staff and community member organization that answers directly to the University President.
