Academic Community Engagement
As the University of Northern Colorado transitions with new leadership, strategic priorities, and re-envisioning our commitment to student success and the public good, it is appropriate that the Office of Engagement clarifies our identity and purpose. In alignment with the original mission and vision, and cognizant of the educational impact and context of our work we now assume the title, Office of Academic Community Engagement (ACE).
The Office of Engagement recognizes and nurtures community engaged teaching and learning that affords students opportunities to apply content and disciplinary knowledge outside the classroom, thus enhancing their learning experience while also impacting our communities.
The Office of Engagement acknowledges and supports community engaged research, scholarship and creative works across disciplines among faculty and students that does so in collaboration with communities and for the public good.
The Office of Engagement facilitates and creates connections to develop and sustain for mutually beneficial community-campus partnerships for faculty, students and community enrichment.
