Become a Partner

Getting Started

If your organization is not formally connected to the Office of Community-Engaged Leadership as an official Community Partner, the steps to becoming one are:

  1. Contact our office to begin our intake process, which will include the review of a Memorandum of Understanding.
  2. We will arrange a time to visit your organization.
  3. We will explore how to get your organization connected to the University and its resources in the way that best suits your needs.
