Partner Development

The Office of Community Engaged Learning has connections with more than 140 organization across the Des Moines metro. We operate under a wholistic partnership model meaning we seek multiple connections with the same sites. The quality of our partnerships is more important than the quantity.

Establishing a Partnership
Have a project idea, but need help finding an agency to work with? We can help identify sites, establish contact with community partners and provide descriptive information about the sites.
