How to Engage with Us


Students can find a variety of pathways through which they can engage in the Center. Engagement pathways can be Programs, Initiative and Research Projects. For more information, reach out to Betsy Shimberg or visit the Swearer Staff page to contact a member of the Academic Programs unit.


The Swearer Center is committed to being a space of connection and integration, a place where students and faculty can explore the application of theory to practice and learn from practice to inform theory. Today, we call this approach to reciprocal and meaningful community impact Engaged Scholarship. For more information on partnering with the Center, please visit the Swearer Staff page to reach out to a member of the Community Partnerships unit.
