Community Partnerships

Broadview in the Community

There are no walls separating Broadview University campuses from the communities we serve. Our students commute from neighborhoods in the area, faculty members include local business, medical, legal and IT professionals, and a high proportion of our graduates remain in the surrounding community throughout their careers. These factors all reinforce our core value of service to the community.

Community partners

We work closely with local groups and individuals, including the following, to enrich our communities through education:

  • Organizations that host interns and student service-learning projects
  • Business people and professionals who serve on advisory boards, ensuring our curriculum provides high-value skills 
  • Employers that participate in job fairs and post positions on our employment website
  • Alumni that return to serve as guest speakers, mentors and instructors

Community service

Every program at our college incorporates service learning into the curriculum, opportunities for students to provide local organizations with real value. Students may provide free chair massages at a community event, educate children on animal care, or help the elderly prepare tax returns. Staff and faculty regularly participate in community service projects, helping non-profits better serve their clients.

If you know of an organization that would benefit from a service project, please contact the campus director or service-learning coordinator at a campus near you.
