WSU Recognized for Community Engagement

Winona State University has been selected to receive the 2015 Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, a national policy and research center for higher education.

“I am astounded at the level of integration and engagement the university community enjoys with the Winona and Rochester communities,” said Patricia L. Rogers, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “The community engagement classification reaffirms our commitment to our mission. We are truly a community of learners improving the world.”

According to Rogers, community engagement at Winona State is about connecting students to purpose-driven work that applies their learning from the classroom to the community they live in. WSU students have contributed more than one million volunteer hours since 2007, with more than half of WSU students involved in service to the community.
