Lechowicz to Serve as Director of the Center for Community Partnerships

Cathy Lechowicz, who served as the director of the Office of Community Services and Volunteerism for the past eight years, has taken on a new role, director of the Center for Community Partnerships (CCP).

“Cathy’s charge is to support the University’s liberal arts mission by collaborating with departments to engage faculty, staff, and students to weave civic engagement into the fabric of Wesleyan’s academic, community, and student endeavors,” wrote Rob Rosenthal, provost and vice president for academic affairs, in an all-campus e-mail.

The CCP combines the resources of Service-Learning Center, the Office of Community Service and Volunteerism, the Office of Community Relations, and the Green Street Arts Center. Lechowicz will be coordinating work between these units while also aligning these initiatives with various other university-community efforts being mounted at the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life, the Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship and PIMMS.
