Community Engagement

Community engagement is the collaboration between institutions of higher education, such as VCU, and their larger communities for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in the context of partnership and reciprocity. It can involve partnerships and coalitions that help mobilize resources, influence systems, and serve as catalysts for initiating and/or changing policies, programs and practices.

VCU is a community of engaged citizens, working together to positively impact lives, so the VCU School of Education works closely with community partners to generate innovative solutions to complex challenges that impact educational outcomes and our community well-being.
