The College of Community Engagement and Professions fosters innovative collaborations through education, research, and community outreach.

Research across the College is closely tied to the communities we work in and partner with. Our faculty, staff, and students find inspiration working in schools, community organizations, government agencies, businesses and corporations.

Research Support

The College offers a full range of services in support of the three schools’ sponsored research activities, and acts as a liaison between investigators and the UWM Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP).

Curriculum Synergies Work Group
The Curriculum Synergies group provides opportunities for members of CCEP to collaborate, take advantage of existing curricular strengths among the three schools, and explore synergies through the development of new courses, micro-credentials, certificates, and degree programs.

The work group welcomes new ideas. Past meetings have included synergy discussions on trauma-informed care, policy and law, gerontology and aging, and doctoral program collaboration.
