Community partnerships and outreach

白菜交流论坛 State University is committed by its mission to academic excellence and 社区 partnerships through curriculum, 教学, scholarship, and 服务 designed to support our urban mission.

Partnerships and outreach describe two different but related approaches to 社区 engagement.

Partnership focuses on collaborative interactions between campus and 社区 for the mutually beneficial exchange, exploration and application of knowledge, information and resources. Partnership examples include the St. Paul Public 图书馆 which operates its Dayton's Bluff Branch in a co-located university library and information center on the Saint Paul campus; or the GROW-IT Center, a 社区-university hub for knowledge exchange, research and 教学 about food security and urban agriculture.

Outreach focuses on the application and pro愿景 of university resources for 社区 use with benefits to both campus and 社区. For example, reduced rental rates for 社区 and nonprofit use of campus facilities; or The Zone 首页work Help Center, where university students tutor neighborhood youth to assist in mutually beneficial academic development.
