Community Engagement at USF

Community Engagement at the University of San Francisco, a Jesuit Catholic institution, is the development of sustained and authentic partnerships between the university and its diverse city, state, national, and global communities for the reciprocal exchange of knowledge, skills, and resources.

Community engagement can take many forms: service-learning, community service, participatory research and scholarship that makes the university relevant to the community, training and technical assistance, and other activities that promote the shared interests of community partners and lead to transformational experiences for faculty, staff, and students. Community engagement at the University of San Francisco prepares educated and committed women and men who are concerned about society at large and particularly those who are poor, unprotected, and neglected. By addressing critical societal issues at home and abroad, students, faculty, and staff contribute to the common good and to changing the world.
