Community Engagement

Housed in the Honors College but serving the university more generally, CommunityEngagement@Wayne promotes excellence in community engagement and civic leadership by providing students with opportunities to engage responsibly with the local community; providing faculty with tools for incorporating service learning and community engagement into their courses; and providing community organizations with assistance from some of Wayne State's most dedicated citizens. It comprises various initiatives, including:

  • Community of Scholars: A service organization that requires a minimum 3.0 GPA and 15 service hours each semester.
  • Maintaining a database of community partners
  • Oversight of service-learning courses and promotion of best practices
