Partner Engagment

The Office of Community Engagement explores ways to provide professional and educational opportunities for our students and community partners by creatively drawing on our assets.

Alumni-Led Workshop Series

The Office of Community Engagement is proud to launch our Alumni-Led Workshop Series! These workshops are an attempt to utilize the vast array of skills and talents of our alumni as resources for our community partners. We hope that this new initiative will provide rich engagement opportunities among community partners and non-profit leaders, and Clinton School of Public Service students and alumni. If you have questions or are looking for more extensive partner support, please contact Hilary Trudell at or 501-683-5392.
