A brief description of the plan(s) to advance Public Engagement around sustainability:

As part of their Strategic Plan 2012-2022, Stevens set a goal to continue to identify and centralize the numerous formal partnerships, outreach activities and ad hoc connections with the City of Hoboken and the Hoboken community in areas such as volunteerism, facilities use, educational initiatives, student programming, athletics clinics, student research and senior design projects, business partnerships, technology initiatives and more. A community outreach web site, StevensConnects, was created to aide in the achievement of this goal. Due to their geographic location and Stevens' dedication to innovation, these partnerships are strongly rooted in resiliency (in the face of natural disaster, etc) and sustainability of the city.
