About Us

Our Mission:

The Swearer Center is a community of scholars, students, practitioners, and community members that work together to build on community strengths and addresses community challenges. Our work engages all as co-learners, co-teachers, co-actors, and co-creators of knowledge and action. Through the creative capacities of our students, faculty, and community partners we explore, build and implement collaborative and strategic projects, programs, and initiatives. Our work yields transformative learning, and positive sustainable change, through collective action.
