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.
Growing SFU's capacity for authentic and courageous partnerships.
Facilitating the emergence of a framework for post-secondary transformational change in Canada.
Fuelling student innovation and social impact through community partnership.
A community-engaged campus acts bravely, committing itself to equity, diversity, and inclusion by embracing collaborative practices of knowledge creation, teaching, research and creative activity.
It remains accountable to shared values and principles, ready to respectfully and compassionately "walk the talk" of transformational change and Reconciliation.
