Welcome Community Partners!
If you are looking for a way to partner with UC Merced Students, you’ve come to the right place!
We are always excited to develop new partnerships and projects to engage our students with our community! And if you’re not quite sure, we would be happy to talk it through with you.
If you have either a long-term project or a one-time event for which you feel you would like student support, we will most likely be able to help recruit students, or connect you with the appropriate campus center. Please keep in mind the importance of your role as community educator – in other words, the opportunity you have to educate students not only about the benefit of the project for which you are recruiting, but also about the population you serve, and the needs and opportunities for ongoing partnership.
Please keep in mind, however, that these partnerships are designed to be mutually reciprocal, and we try to avoid placing our students in situations where they are being used simply as “free labor.” If you have questions about this, please feel free to contact us so we can have a conversation with you to determine if it is appropriate. For more information you can email us or call us at (209) 228-4201.
