Partnering with and Serving Our Region, and Beyond

Students walking

Stanislaus State prepares students to contribute to the vitality of our region, state, nation, and beyond. This commitment to partnering with and serving our region and beyond is evidenced prominently in the University’s new Strategic Plan 2017-2025 with its Goal 5, and is demonstrated through engagement in service learning courses and the numerous curriculum-embedded internships, field experiences and practicums.

In addition to curriculum-embedded experiences that contribute to the community, the University has a variety of co-curricular service learning, internship, and other community-based activities that are grounded in strong community partnerships. Additionally, both faculty and students engage in a variety of research, scholarly, and creative activities that address issues directly relevant to a thriving and healthy community, many with a special focus on diversity and inclusion, among other important topics.

See below examples of the many ways Stanislaus State partners with and serves our region, and beyond!
