Community Experience

At UW Oshkosh we believe that civic engagement is a central responsibility of college-educated citizens. We want you to get started right away!

 

As you invest in yourself and your education, we will give you the opportunity to re-invest in your local or global communities. Quest III encompasses a community experience project where you and your classmates are introduced to civic action, community partners and real-world challenges. This project not only addresses your final Signature Question, but it also has a clear connection to Quest III course content.

Types of Community Partnerships

The community experience project may range from service with an on-campus student organization to a weekend with an area non-profit agency to an alternative Spring break experience. Here is a sample list of the types of community partners in Quest III:

  • businesses
  • non-profit organizations
  • civic associations
  • public schools
  • college and universities
  • health and human service organizations
  • government organizations
  • UW Oshkosh campus organizations

 

Project Support

An Alumni Mentor is assigned to the community engagement portion of each Quest III course. These mentors enhance your connection to the community through on- and off-campus outreach projects and service opportunities. Learn more about Alumni Mentors.
