Nazareth College this week announced that Nuala Boyle will serve as the executive director of the school’s new Center for Civic Engagement at Nazareth College, jointly housed in the Academic Affairs and Student Development divisions.
The initiative was designed to help the college fulfill its mission of preparing students to become active members in the community.
The center will provide strategic direction, advocacy, resource development and integration to the rich and varied programs through which the college connects to the surrounding community.
“Civic engagement is a pillar of the Nazareth College education,” Nazareth President Daan Braveman said in a statement, “and working to better the community around us starts as soon as our students arrive as freshmen.”
Boyle’s new responsibilities will include, among others, coordinating civic engagement programs and projects that emphasize and assess student learning outcomes, attaining funding through grants, donors, and corporate sponsors, and building and sustaining constructive working relationships with community organizations.
