The Jandon Center for Community Engagement is committed to being a good neighbor and community member. We know that college-community partnerships not only sustain stronger communities and advance community goals, but also support and advance our goals as an educational institution. Community partnerships provide valuable opportunities for Smith students to learn with and from community members about the real- world implications of their academic studies, about their own values and passions, and about how to be active, responsible members of a community. For researchers, these relationships offer opportunities to collaborate with community organizations in the active generation and application of knowledge to benefit society.

The Jandon Center develops and maintains reciprocal, long-term partnerships with community organizations. These mutually beneficial relationships focus on community-identified needs and issues. They bring together students, faculty and staff to work with our community partners in community service, community-based learning courses, community-based participatory research and outreach programs.

Community Program Partners are community organizations and/or government agencies that work directly with JCCE staff to offer ongoing local service and community-based opportunities for Smith students.


Community Placement Partners are community organizations and/or government agencies that host, mentor, and provide community-based learning opportunities for Smith students.
