Early in the fall semester, we welcomed Colin Petramale to the VP&SL team as the new Coordinator for Community Partnerships, Faith and Justice! Colin manages the frst year Pioneer Service Grant program, in addition to building and maintaining the relationships with our of-campus community partners.

We strengthened the commitment to our partners by on boarding with GivePulse, our community engagement tracking sofware. Nonproft organizations receive free access through their afliation with SHU, allowing them to publicize partnership opportunities; SHU students, staff and faculty can connect with these partners by searching and signing up for upcoming activities. It’s a win-win situation!

We were also excited to reengage with off-campus and in-person student programming, sending student volunteers, work study employees, and service-learners back out into the community afer a year and a half. Collectively, members of the SHU community provided over 115,505 hours of community engagement work for the 2021-2022 academic year!

Finally, we look forward to returning to our global programming this coming year, ofering students the opportunity to engage with our global partners in South and Central America through our spring break global service-learning programs. We also anticipate expanding our reach to include a Greece program in May 2023!

Our role in living out and promoting the mission of the university begins with our students.
