The Key Center for Community Engaged Learning connects community partners, students, faculty, and staff to build relationships that strengthen communities & address social issues.
Cultural humility, social responsibility, and sustainability are central to the Key Center’s philosophy of community engaged learning. Our community partners are experts and co-educators who help drive and guide the learning curriculum, our service work, and the approach we take when entering into this community.
We aim to support students as they develop as scholars, leaders, and active citizens by coordinating and supporting service experiences, community based research, service learning, cultural events, and educational programs. In building authentic relationships with our community partners, we help students broaden their perspective, develop critical thinking strategies, apply transferable skills, and explore their life purpose.
