Community Engagement prepares students for lives of meaning and impact through service, scholarship, and citizenship. Its programs work to strengthen communities and contribute to the public good.
There are many ways for YOU to get involved!

- Register to vote or request an absentee ballot through MiddVote.
- Join one of several different student service organizations.
- Pursue a self-designed project that meets a community-identified need.
- Take action in the fight against poverty.
