Community Engagement Office Takes Flight

IUPUI’s traditional focus on engagement with the city of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, and beyond is taking a new shape: the Office of Community Engagement.

The new office, led by Vice Chancellor for Community Engagement Amy Conrad Warner, will connect the campus with individuals, businesses, nonprofits, schools, health care providers and neighborhood organizations in exciting and effective ways to handle the challenges that lie ahead.

The Community Engagement Offices’s goals are to develop more civic-minded graduates, to attract and retain the highest quality faculty and staff, to leverage campus resources to address local and global problems and to contribute to improving the economic and educational development of the community.

The new office will include the former Office of External Affairs, the Community Learning Network, the Solution Center, the Center for Service and Learning and IUPUI Alumni Relations. Community Engagement will be fully integrated by July 1. To learn more about the office, visit the website (engage.iupui.edu), or contact it by telephone (317-274-7400) or email (engage@iupui.edu). The office will offer engagement news and updates via Twitter @engageiupui.
