Our Mission and Vision
We cultivate civic engagement and social responsibility by building campus-community partnerships that address community needs, provide experiential learning opportunities, develop informed and engaged leaders, and promote justice and sustainability.
When campus and community work together toward mutual goals, we create positive change.
Daemen University has the responsibility to develop strong, informed, and engaged leaders who serve their community.
Civic engagement entails creating shared opportunities that are mutually beneficial to the university and the community.
In order to promote justice and sustainability, we must work with communities to develop resources and increase their own internal capacity.
Collaboration, inclusivity, and openness to change are essential to success.
Learning is enhanced when classroom material connects to community experiences.
Pushing beyond our comfort zones results in personal growth and change.
