Mutually beneficial university-community partnerships are an integral component of the Office of Community Engagement at Eastern Washington University. Students work with nonprofits, government agencies and educational institutions over the course of an academic quarter applying concepts learned in his or her class. As a co-educator, you (the agency) will help students understand the concepts in a real-world context. Support, resources and networking opportunities are provided to Eagle Partners in order to develop sustainable, reciprocal partnerships.
