The Harward Center for Community Partnerships helps build the capacity of new and returning students, faculty and staff to enact the civic mission of the college.

This year we are encouraging each student organization at Bates to consider how it can connect to the off-campus community in mutually beneficial ways. We invite organizations to select one or two of their members to serve as Community Liaisons who will learn about the resources and concerns of the off-campus community and then help their organization engage that community in thoughtful and constructive ways.

Names of Community Liaisons and the organizations they represent should be sent to Peggy Rotundo in the Harward Center by Sept. 27.

In addition to the Community Liaison program, students interested in community-engaged learning or research, volunteer and civic engagement opportunities, community work-study or community-engaged leadership are encouraged to visit the Harward Center at 161 Wood St. or to visit our website.

Faculty and staff are also always welcome at the Harward Center!
