Director, the Regula Center
The Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement was created to support Mount Union’s mission to prepare students for fulfilling lives, meaningful work and responsible citizenship by being the place where members of the campus and wider community can work collaboratively in service of the greater good. It is the mission of the Center to prepare students to pursue careers in public service, promote community engagement, enhance teaching and learning, and build partnerships through the development of service-learning and community service opportunities, academic and co-curricular programs in public service, and community-based research initiatives.
The vision of the Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement is four-fold:
- Mount Union will become a significant conduit of prepared and motivated individuals seeking careers in local, state, and federal government in a wide variety of capacities.
- Having access to a comprehensive service-learning and community service program will allow students opportunities to become involved in activities which lead to the enhancement of their long-term commitment to civic engagement, social responsibility, and public service.
- The academic and intellectual climate of Mount Union will be enhanced by expanding beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom.
- Mount Union will have a lasting, positive effect on the broader community by developing partnerships and conducting research designed to address key community needs and respond to important social problems.
