Community Partner Events

In our work with community partners, we strive to develop opportunities that are mutually beneficial to both students and our partners. As part of that commitment, our Partners have access to several capacity-building and networking programs throughout the year. The design and subject matter of these opportunities is directly driven by Partner requests and feedback.

Community Partner Breakfast

Our Community Partner Breakfast is held annually at the beginning of the academic year, giving Partners an opportunity to gather over breakfast and connect with each other. During this networking event, the Center for Community Engagement can engage with our Partners about our past work and let them know about our plans and events for the upcoming year.

But most importantly, the Breakfast gives us an opportunity to thank our Community Partners for all the work that they do with our Bonner and Community Engaged Learning students.

Global Citizenship Fair

The Neighborhood Center at the Global Citizenship Fair

The Global Citizenship Fair is co-hosted by the Center for Community Engagement, WORLD: International Learning, and the Office of Career and Professional Development. It is an opportunity for students to learn more about study abroad programs, internships with non-profit agencies, and volunteer opportunities with local community partners. Partners are invited to join us on the Stetson Green to talk to students about their organization's work every year as part of Stetson's Values Day programming.

Non-Profit Leadership Summit

The Non-Profit Leadership Summit began in 2022 to provide our Community Partners with the tools they need to succeed. Held annually during the fall semester, the Summit focuses on different topics relating to non-profit management, networking, and fundraising. Topics are chosen based on the needs of our Partners as expressed during our annual site visits and other Partner meetings held throughout the year.

Faculty Partner Mixers

Faculty Partner Mixers bring together community leaders and faculty to discuss pressing issues in our community. This event encourages open dialogue between community stakeholders to exchange available resources and brainstorm ideas to address issue areas.
