Community Engagement

Community Engagement, as part of the Office of Community Affairs, creates and coordinates community outreach opportunities that increase awareness and support for the College's programs and services. Partnerships are established and maintained with churches, schools, universities, school districts, and community organizations to increase enrollment, especially with under-served populations.
