Civic and Community Engagement is the primary vehicle at Millersville University to foster, focus and coordinate civic and community engagement and research. As such, Civic and Community Engagement engages in a variety of activities, such as the following:
- Foster collaborations and approaches across disciplines and sectors (e.g., education, business, social service and government agencies, faith communities, and grass root organizations);
- Provide opportunities for faculty, students and staff to engage in and contribute their expertise in searching for solutions to challenges in local and global communities;
- Develop new models, provide expertise, and create linkages to address relevant issues;
- Conduct, publish and disseminate results of sponsored research, polling, open-ended interviewing, mass media educational communication, teleconferencing, online and print, cross-cultural consulting, and training, conferences and other media.
The Walker Center for Civic Responsibility & Leadership provides student-centered educational and developmental projects and activities. It is premised on the view that through civic education students will be awakened and equipped to become active leaders in civic affairs.
The Center for Public Scholarship & Social Change is committed to the production and dissemination of rigorous research that is community-based or community-focused in collaboration with key figures and organizations of client communities.
Experiential Learning and Career Management administers and coordinates the university’s academic internships and volunteer opportunities through community partnerships, assists in developing service-learning courses, and supports the endeavors of the Centers.
