Partnering community engagement with academics at West Virginia Wesleyan allows faculty and students to collaborate with community partners in a deeper understanding of local, regional, national and global issues. From service-learning to community-based research, WVWC students engage in reciprocal relationships with our community while cultivating a rigorous, liberal arts education.

Wesleyan faculty are supported by the CCE with assistance in:

  • Logistical planning support
  • Community partner matching and
  • A library of print and web-based resources.



WV Campus Compact-Campus Community LINK Project

  • West Virginia Campus Compact has offered grant funds from the Benedum Foundation to Wesleyan faculty whose classes are willing to work with communities throughout the state.  Wesleyan is one of a number of West Virginia schools who are recipients of the grant. 
  • The $6000 grants can be used by faculty members to purchase any supplies or materials needed to complete their projects with a $1000 stipend to be awarded to the faculty member.
