Image Picker for Section 0

In the spring of 2015, Provost Grasso launched the UD Community Engagement Initiative  with the goal of enhancing the university’s identity and contributions as an engaged university. One of the key goals of the Initiative is to support and build upon the work of UD’s centers and institutes that have a central commitment to community engagement and public service.  In support of that goal, the Council of Community Engagement and Public Service Centers has been established. The Council is composed of the heads of a variety of university units that carry out the university’s educational, research and public service mission in a manner that directly engages the public.

The units that are represented on the Council are particularly attentive to identifying and understanding the needs, challenges and opportunities faced by different communities, local to global, and working with them to produce positive community and societal impacts.  In doing so, the centers also provide robust experiential learning opportunities for all involved, including faculty and staff, students, public agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses and citizens.

The Council advises the CEI on opportunities and priorities to strengthen the community engagement and public service contributions of its member units.  The Council also recommends steps to enhance collaboration across centers and institutes.

The Council is co-chaired by Nancy Karibjanian, Director of the University of Delaware Center for Political Communication, and Dr. George Irvine, Director, Corporate Programs & Partnerships in the Lerner College of Business and Economics.
