Community Partners

We view our partners as our students’ teachers, and we believe that we all learn from one another, sharing equally in the construction of knowledge. The partnerships we sustain are consistent with the College’s mission relating to experiential education generally, and more specifically to help students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills of social responsibility, intercultural understanding, lifelong learning, and leadership.
