Students and faculty in the Sharpe Community Scholars Program work with a variety of community partners, including government agencies and offices, non-profit and grassroots organizations, corporate professionals, churches, citizen-leaders, and residents to accomplish mutually defined and shared goals.
Community partners are a valued component of the integrative learning fostered by the Sharpe program, adding practical and professional knowledge beyond the parameters of traditional scholarship and the classroom. Often co-educators to our students, community partners stake an interest in our students' learning.
