Hagen Center for Civic and Urban Engagement

The Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Civic and Urban Engagement serves as a gateway between the Wittenberg and Springfield communities.

Map to Wittenberg's Weaver ChapelLocated on North Fountain Avenue, next to the Benham-Pence Student Center and the Joseph C. Shouvlin Center for Lifelong Learning, The Hagen Center was established in 2008 and endowed by Susan Hirt Hagen in 2011.

The Hagen Center works strategically with faculty, staff, and community partners in nonprofits, education, and government to advance the common good while providing rich learning opportunities for students and preparing them to be active, engaged citizens. Through the Hagen Center, students have the opportunity to engage with our Springfield partners through community service, summer internships, academic civic engagement projects and courses, and research.

Described by former Ohio Lt. Governor Lee Fisher as "the model" for how universities should engage with their communities and ensure that generations of students are committed to civic engagement, the Center promotes responsible, productive, and thoughtful scholarship, service and collaboration between Wittenberg University and the Greater Springfield area to create a more vibrant, cohesive community.
