Hagen Center for Civic & Urban Engagement | Wittenberg University

A Community Commitment

Established in 2008, The Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Civic & Urban Engagement is the most visible manifestation of Wittenberg’s commitment to community service, civic engagement and economic partnership with the local and regional community. The Hagen Center ties Wittenberg to the community and the community to Wittenberg through service, internships, research, engaged teaching and learning, and off-campus employment.
