The SFU Surrey – TD Community Engagement Centre

As our society faces increasing social, environmental and economic challenges, universities have a significant role to play in contributing to the development, vibrancy and sustainability of the local communities where they are situated. 

The SFU Surrey – TD Community Engagement Centre (SFU CEC) provides an opportunity for SFU to connect with people and organizations in Surrey in a genuine way through collaboration, the sharing of resources and the co-creation of ideas and solutions to build more resilient communities. 

The SFU CEC operates with generous funding from the TD Bank Group, and offers programming in partnership with community organizations that focus on supporting children, youth and families and Newcomers to Canada.

Why this might be important to you.

Making a direct contribution to the well-being of our community – on terms co-created with partners in our community – is one of the main purposes for growing community engagement. If you are interested in work opportunities that have that kind of impact, or are interested in the kinds of principles that underpin the foundation for such partnerships, you might be interested in learning more about the SFU CEC. 

Making a difference in the community also makes a difference in you.
