Community Partners

We build partnerships. We want to build one with you.

Our commitment is to mobilize USM students, faculty and staff to address community-identified needs in partnerships marked by respect, reciprocity, and mutual benefit. Whether we have been collaborating for years, or you want to start a new relationship, we want to talk with you. 

We can partner with you in a variety of ways:

  • Help you find volunteers and interns
  • Team you up with faculty on service-learning experiences 
  • Setup ongoing community-campus initiatives

How to Get Started:

  • If you are interested in exploring a partnership, please complete this brief Partnership Request Formwhich will share information that is important in helping us find the right campus connections to begin a conversation.
  • Before you contact us about a partnership, you may wish to explore our Community Partner Handbook, a very helpful resource that provides information on what to expect and how to make the most of your experience with USM Students, filled with a number of practical suggestions.
  • If you are looking to recruit volunteers for an upcoming event or ongoing opportunity, please email us at using our Weekly Announcement Template
