What is Community Engagement?

Community Engagement gives students the opportunity to gain valuable experience, explore career directions, develop global citizenship skills, give back to the community, and apply and explore personal and academic interests.  Internships, service-learning courses, practica, and community service are all essential parts of the USM experience.
