Civic Engagement at William Paterson

Internal Advisory Group

An internal advisory group, including faculty and staff from across disciplines and divisions, regularly reviews and recommends civic engagement programming that will help us achieve our civic engagement mission. The collaboration of academic and student development faculty and staff has increased knowledge of activities, fostered collaborations, and created processes to enhance student, faculty and staff civic engagement participation.
