Community Engagement

The University of St. Thomas offers courses that engage in the community through non-profit organizations, schools, and governmental agencies. These courses require community service, most in collaboration with specific community partners who have identified projects for students to complete in the timeframe of one semester. These opportunities provide students with real world experiences even as they learn their discipline-specific course content. Community partners become co-educators with our faculty—all with the goal of advancing the common good. The courses that include a service component change each semester, but students can find the "service learning component" attribute on classfinder when searching for courses; designated courses can also be viewed on the community engagement website.
