Community Engagement at the Holden Center

Welcome to the Holden Center, the hub of leadership development, experiential learning and community engagement on campus. The Holden Center strives to unite our campus and host community in mutually beneficial relationships of engaged scholarship, reciprocity and social change. 

Through our diverse programming, students can develop strong relationships with the community, ground their academic experience in an applied context and engage new cultures domestic and abroad.
