About Us

Our Vision
St. Norbert College and its students will be full partners with the Brown County community in the work to promote the common good and to create communio. Through their experiences, St. Norbert College students commit to lifelong service.

Our Mission
The Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning seeks to deepen the experience of communio by:
  • Supporting members of the college in their service efforts
  • Promoting transformative student learning   
  • Addressing real community needs   
  • Building relationships of mutuality
  • Working for the common good

We do so inspired by our Catholic, liberal arts and Norbertine traditions.

Our Goals
The Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning will:

  • Serve as a resource to SNC students, faculty, staff, alumni and 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.
  • Strengthen relationships with Brown County partners working for the common good, making available college resources to support those efforts.
  • Develop the college’s capacity to serve the common good by fostering campus-wide discussion on service; promoting community engagement; assessing the progress of the work of the center; and recognizing significant college contributions to serving the common good in Brown County and beyond.
