MSU Excellence in Community Engagement Awards

The Mississippi State University Excellence in Community Engagement Awards recognize outstanding accomplishment in community engagement in the categories of Community-Engaged Service, Community-Engaged Teaching and Learning, Community- Engaged Research, and Scholarship of Engagement. Community Engagement describes collaboration between MSU and partnering communities for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
Communities are broadly defined as groups of people affiliated by geographic proximity, special interests, or situational similarities at the local, regional/state, national, or global levels. The most outstanding example of a community engagement project or program in each of the four areas will receive a $5,000 grant to further community engagement within Mississippi State’s threefold mission of learning, research, and service.

Award applications for 2019 will be available in late August. Please click here to read about the 2018 award recipients:
