Community Engagement in SUSS
At SUSS, Community Engagement is conceived as an integral part of the University’s learning ecology and a pedagogy to empower you to further develop and act on your sense of social responsibility, grounded in real-world ideas and practices to contribute meaningfully to society. Community Engagement is a graduating requirement of SUSS full-time degree programmes.
Community Engagement is an educational experience under which students learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully-organised service experiences that meet actual community needs and that are coordinated in collaboration with university and community. It creates a connection between the university and the community that facilitates unique cross-sector collaboration and shared resources that help to enhance society’s well-being. Through community engagement, you invite community partners to become your co-educators to guide you in your journey of growth to become leaders in society.
