The Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning works to help St. Norbert College and its students partner fully with the Brown County community in work that promotes the common good. It serves as a resource to students, faculty, staff, alumni and other supporters interested in community service – particularly as it impacts student learning – by providing guidance; best practice tools; occasions for reflection; and access to opportunities for community engagement.
Further, it supports and develops the college’s mission to serve the common good by fostering campus-wide discussion on service, promoting community engagement and recognizing significant contributions to serving the common good in Brown County and beyond.
