Community Partners

CILSA seeks to establish and maintain mutually beneficial relationships with local organizations and the communities they serve.

How does CILSA work with community partners?

CILSA staff members are happy to speak and meet with nonprofit staff to learn about the goals and needs of their organizations and consider how Saint Mary’s College students and faculty can help meet them.

As an academic office, CILSA specifically connects community partners with faculty and students for service-learning and community-based research projects. Additionally, CILSA student leaders in both the Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) and Jumpstart programs provide direct service to a number of local nonprofit organizations and schools.
