Community Partner Resources


The Center for Campus and Community Connections partners with local community partners to:

  • assist agencies with volunteer projects
  • pair students with relevant opportunities for academic service learning, community engagement, or internship hours
  • support our campus community with need-based resources through local agencies
  • build community both on and off campus.

Community partners should contact our office to ensure that we have accurate contact information on file. The office maintains a community partner database with the appropriate contact person and a description of opportunities with training expectations, time constraints, location and other relevant details.

We ask that our community partners be willing to help students learn about the organization, the population served and the systemic and civic supports and obstacles that you may experience. Students placed through our offices are participating in service to help meet academic outcomes and may use this experience as part of their course work.

For more information or to speak with our Director, Krista Kiessling please call (567) 661-2275 or email krista_kiessling@owens.edu.

Community Partners can also find additional forms and documentation on the forms webpage.

Owens Engagement and Resource Fair

Community Partners are invited to share information about volunteer opportunities at their organizations and can meet students and faculty to coordinate relevant and mutually beneficial activities for service learning and community engagement.  We also invite agencies who provide resources relevant to our student population, specifically housing, food, employment, utilities, childcare, etc.
