Plunge Days


Service Plunge Days are set aside throughout the year for the campus community to plunge into service and learning.

Community engagement describes collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
