The Jandon Center engages faculty, students and community partners on social-change projects that tackle community-driven goals. Through experiential learning and scholarship, students build essential capacities in critical thinking while providing significant leadership on urgent, complex issues facing communities and society.

About the Center
We work with community partners to critically engage with theories, data and experiences to improve interdependent aspects of community health. We initiate, encourage, support, test and reflect on collaborative strategies and projects. We aspire to:
- Serve as the center where the ethics of civic engagement and community building remain at the forefront.
- Further build Jandon initiatives that engage campus and community deeply and over the long-term.
- Develop opportunities for ethical civic engagement in the classroom, both in teaching and by supporting course-related community-based work.
- Create a space where anyone can drop by and feel welcome.
