Through networking, professional development, peer coaching, and sharing best practices, CEPN enhances members’ capacities to advance community engagement on their campus and throughout the state.
The Community Engagement Professionals Network (CEPN) will host our first peer-led professionals meeting of the year at Eastern Connecticut State University.
