Methodist University has been actively involved in supporting the local community since its founding in 1957. The Community Engagement pathway of the MU Journey gives students the opportunity to engage in meaningful projects and career preparation.
The Center for Community Engagement is proud to work with campus and community organizations that align with our mission to create social change for the common good. Past projects include: meal-packing with Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now), feeding the homeless, mentoring youth, cleaning up community highways, and rebuilding homes damaged by hurricanes and floods.
The Center for Community Engagement offers MU students opportunities to participate in time-limited, problem-solving, community-based internships. These internships enable individual students to gain experience in the job market.
Students who desire greater opportunities for further experience will be able to participate in the new Community Engagement Fellows program which provides students an opportunity to expand their existing knowledge, skills, and leadership experiences around community engagement, and to apply their education in the development of a project that directly addresses campus and/or community impact areas.
