Community Engagement integrates service to the greater community with classroom instruction, connects service to academic content, and encourages personal reflection. Community Engagement also supports a number of programs allowing students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other Centenary community members to perform meaningful service throughout the local and global community.

The BIG Event
“Serving the community isn't about the hours or the resume, not even the reputation you build from it. Serving is about building trust, creating connections, constructing paths that lead to a better tomorrow,--but most importantly, it's about learning and growth. During my experiences, I've grown through the sweat of the labor and learned to heal through the tenderhearted conversations.”
– Reginald A. Porter II '21
