  • The Schools of Public Engagement enable students to effect positive change in the world through community-engaged and client-based projects, creative collaborations, and entrepreneurial ventures. From the moment students enter our classrooms, they are given the training and tools they need to design solutions to the most complex contemporary problems. Our students and faculty are reshaping creative industries, government and non-government organizations, nonprofits, and educational institutions to make them more just, equitable, and sustainable. At the Schools of Public Engagement, research and work include creative and professional practice, social ventures, community facilitation, new forms of pedagogy, and more.

  • Centers, institutes, and special initiatives at the Schools of Public Engagement engage faculty, students, and community partners in the process of co-creating knowledge in a variety of disciplines.
