The Spencer Center for Civic and Global Engagement is literally and figuratively at the heart of Mary Baldwin University. Located in the middle of campus, the Center is a living testament to Mary Baldwin’s commitment to both local and worldwide community outreach. The center offers a clearinghouse of service, study, or volunteer abroad opportunities, as well as service-learning and international education resources for faculty.
It is also a forum for dialogue on an array of civic and global topics, offering guest lectures, faculty-development seminars, and panel discussions on topics such as hunger, healthcare, and human rights. The Spencer Center hosts a study abroad fair and community service fair, and a bimonthly “international café” dialogue series.
In celebration of Mary Baldwin’s anniversary, the university community is engaging in 175 service projects during the 2016-17 academic year.
