Community Education Program

Community Education Program at SFU

Working with communities to create positive social change through access to education

Community engagement and capacity building are central to our work in the Community Education Program. We work with diverse communities, partners, and faculty members to co-create and offer a wide spectrum of programming.

Our goal is to help people strengthen their communities and establish new pathways to the university while maintaining academic excellence. We value diverse ways of learning.

We bring together community-based experts and leading academics in our programs, projects, and workshops to focus on a number of topic areas, including the following:

  • Aboriginal community leadership
  • Aboriginal health and wellness
  • Community capacity-building
  • Community leadership
  • Community health
  • Community literacy
  • Civic engagement
  • Dialogue
  • Facilitation skills
  • University transition skills
  • Workplace training and advanced English for newcomers
