With philosophical rooting in concepts of equity and justice, the Office of Community Engagement connects students, employees and local communities through partnerships intended to catalyze personal, institutional, and community change.
We recognize the inherent dignity and worth of all individuals who constitute our intertwined communities. We value deep partnership with community organizations/schools and members, and envision our work as co-created with multiple constituencies.
The Office of Community Engagement strives to:
- Connect Muhlenberg and Allentown communities in meaningful, deep partnerships aimed at creating positive, inclusive change
- Facilitate individual understanding of social identities, civic engagement and communities
- Enhance our communities’ ability and desire to critically analyze, learn, and dialogue about important social justice issues
- Work toward dismantling systemic barriers to equitable lived experiences
