We work with schools, communities, organizations, children and families, tribal communities, local business and industry. We work to guarantee equitable access and opportunities to enhance quality of life, and responsible, ethical application of professional knowledge. Collectively, we nurture a College culture that values immersion, hands-on, and active participation in the learning process, that extends learning beyond the walls of the classroom, and that relies on engaged scholarship and professional presence in the community as a primary tool of the education process.
