About the Center for Campus and Community Connections

The Center for Campus and Community Connections is a walk-in office created to provide retention support through resource stability initiatives and community connections.  This includes connecting students to campus and community resources, student mentors, and volunteer coordination.

Specifically, we will:

  • Serve as the coordinating office for the Owens Resource Stability Team
  • Connect students to peer Connection Mentors.
  • Sustain and build the Owens Harvest Food Pantry, Career Closet and Community Garden.
  • Connect students to on and off campus resources.
  • Connect the campus community to the community at-large.
  • Research and develop new resources related to resource stability to support Owens students.
  • Assist with coordination of faculty and staff development related to resource stability, service learning, and community engagement.
  • Work with internal stakeholders on College-wide service projects.
  • Model community building on and off campus.
