Community-engaged teaching and learning is a high-impact educational practice that promotes higher levels of learning and success for students. Community-engaged research grounds scholarship in the everyday lives of Michiganders, ensuring research findings are translated into beneficial outcomes for the community.

The hands-on teaching, research and service done by students, faculty, and staff is not only meaningful to everyone involved - it positively impacts quality of life in our City of Grand Rapids, in West Michigan, and in the Mitten State.
