Community Engagement Institute

The Division of Community Engagement hosts VCU's Community Engagement Institute annually in May. The Institute brings together those who share a commitment to solving today's grand challenges through community-academic partnerships.


This free, two-day event provides faculty members, community partners and graduate students the opportunity to build a fundamental understanding of the principles of community engagement in the 21century.
