Community Engagement Institute

The Center for Community Engagement and Impact 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 21st century. 

“I really appreciate this institute. I learned a lot! I'm not sure what I knew before, but the institute showed me that it wasn't much. I feel much better prepared now to begin this work.”
