Community Partners

Partnerships are the cornerstone of our community engagement programs

Our Community Partnerships are the cornerstone of Simmons Community Engagement's programs and service initiatives. SCE staff, along with Simmons faculty and student leaders, work closely with community partner staff and members to develop strong relationships that meet community need while providing meaningful experiences for Simmons students focusing on sustainability and impact. Effective engagement relies on strong campus/community partnerships. Real partnerships enable students, faculty, and community members to work together pursuing goals defined by each.
