Welcome to the Meelia Center for Community Engagement!
The Meelia Center for Community Engagement at Saint Anselm College mobilizes students, faculty and staff to collaborate with more than 50 community agencies throughout Greater Manchester. Annually more than 800 members of the campus community provide over 16,000 service hours.
The Mission of the Meelia Center is to connect the college and the community, and sustain them as partners in addressing real-world challenges. The center promotes shared leadership and mutually beneficial engagement in its work in New Hampshire communities and beyond where transformative experiential learning, engaged scholarship and public service take place.
What began as the Center for Volunteers with four sites in 1989 has completely transformed into the Meelia Center for Community Engagement with more than 55 student leaders managing over 50 commnuity partnerships.
"Working with the Meelia Center is amazing and I could not be happier that I ended up here. My preschool sites are the perfect fit for me and they're exactly what I need after a long week of studying." ~Jenny Farrar, Class of 2016
