We aim to build meaningful, reciprocal, and mutually beneficial relationships with community partners.  Below please find resources that you can utilize to connect with BGSU students, faculty, and staff.  Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions about how BGSU and your agency can partner to enhance our communities.  

Community Engagement Update

We send a weekly newsletter to 4,000+ students, faculty, and staff in which we highlight community service and civic engagement opportunities in Northwest Ohio.  We encourage you to send us information about upcoming events, activities, and programs at your agency.  The newsletter is sent each Thursday.  Please submit your information at least one week prior to your event.

Community-Based Learning Partnerships

A community-based learning (also known as service-learning) course combines teaching and community involvement within an academic setting. A community-based learning course provides an opportunity for students, faculty members, and community partners to engage in organized activities that address community-identified needs. The experience allows participants a chance to reflect on the community engagement activity to gain a further understanding of curricular content, as well as enhance their sense of personal values and civic responsibility.

If your organization has an idea for a community-based learning course partnership, please share it with us.  Faculty and instructors are often in need of community partners to work with their classes.

Contact Paul Valdez at to share your idea and get connected to community-based learning courses at BGSU.
