About SFU's Office of Community Engagement

We know – navigating SFU’s ecosystem of “community engagement” can be daunting. Luckily, that’s mostly because there is so much incredible work going on here. It’s easy to get lost in a forest of awesome.

We work to strengthen SFU’s institutional capacity for building sustainable and equitable partnerships, ones that mobilize teaching, scholarship, and creative activity towards meaningful outcomes and impacts.

One of our primary responsibilities is to steward and shepherd the emergence of SFU's Strategic Community Engagement Plan, ensuring it enables and aligns community engagement work across the institution in ways that live up to our top level aspirations to have real-world impact through terms and partnerships developed with community.

But that's not all we do. Please explore our work and the values & principles we're guided by, get to know us, stay in touch, and get involved
