地铁 State University is committed by its mission to academic excellence and 社区 partnerships through curriculum, 教学, 奖学金, 以及为支持pg电子平台的城市使命而设计的服务.
Partnerships and outreach describe two different but related approaches to 社区 engagement.
Partnership focuses on collaborative interactions between campus and 社区 for the mutually beneficial exchange, 探索和应用知识, 信息和资源. 合伙企业的例子包括圣. Paul Public 图书馆 which operates its Dayton's Bluff Branch in a co-located university library and information center on the Saint Paul campus; or the 培育中心, 社区大学的知识交流中心, research and 教学 about food security and urban agriculture.
Outreach focuses on the application and pro愿景 of university resources for 社区 use with benefits to both campus and 社区. 例如, reduced rental rates for 社区 and nonprofit use of campus facilities; or The Zone 首页work Help Center, where university students tutor neighborhood youth to assist in mutually beneficial academic development.
