In order to achieve our mission to create an equitable and just society by advancing the practice of community engagement, Nexus Community Engagement Institute (NCEI) focuses in three areas: convening communities of practice, growing the field of community engagement, and equipping the field of community engagement. 


We convene beginning, intermediate and advanced community engagement practitioners to explore opportunities and issues emerging in the field.


We coach, train and cultivate authentic community engagement practitioners in institutions, systems and communities.


We produce  tools and resources, lift up stories of impact, and strengthen community engagement evaluation strategies.
