Office of Community Engagement Launches New Website

Posted on June 27, 2018

The new Office of Community of Engagement (OCE) recently launched its website, which is located in the Community section on the University’s homepage.

In addition to serving as a central source of information related to OCE’s scope, projects and partners, the website tells the story of community engagement at Duquesne and shows the impact of its efforts close to home and around the world.

Pages detailing the University’s work in five key areas—Growth and Innovation, Health and Wellness, Education, Empowerment and Volunteerism—highlight the many ways Duquesne collaborates with the community to make a difference.

Led by William Generett, Jr., the University’s first vice president for community engagement, OCE implements the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan’s second imperative and aligns with the Spiritans’ mission to serve our local, regional and global communities. Generett and his team bolster Duquesne’s community engagement efforts by strengthening partnerships and advancing community-engaged teaching, research and service.

“Under the leadership of President Gormley, the University is well-positioned to become one of the region’s most engaged anchor institutions,” said Generett. “This website is one important step toward making that happen.”

The website launch is part of President Gormley’s broader campaign to build awareness for Duquesne’s community engagement projects. OCE is also active on Facebook and Twitter.
