Center for Community Engagement


Our vision is that all Lawrentians will be full and committed partners to the greater Appleton community, striving to further social progress; mitigate inequity; and develop durable, reciprocal partnerships with local nonprofits and municipal agencies. Through their community-based experiences, our students will develop a lifelong commitment to learning, service, and responsible citizenship.

 Our mission is to engage students, faculty, and community partners in collaborative relationships that foster and promote a culture of engaged citizenship, responsible service-learning, and civic action.

We accomplish this mission by:
• Serving as an entry point to the volunteer needs of the Fox Cities and providing service to and learning from the community
• Developing and sustaining programs that acknowledge and address systemic inequity
• Supporting the professional development and leadership needs of service-minded student leaders
