Boldly Baldwin word mark

Spencer Center logo

The Spencer Center for Civic and Global Engagement is literally and figuratively at the heart of Mary Baldwin College. Located in the middle of campus, the Center is a living testament to Mary Baldwin’s commitment to both local and worldwide community outreach. The center offers a clearinghouse of service, study, or volunteer abroad opportunities, as well as service-learning and international education resources for faculty. It is also a forum for dialogue on an array of civic and global topics, offering guest lectures, faculty-development seminars, and panel discussions on topics such as hunger, healthcare, and human rights. The Spencer Center hosts a study abroad fair and community service fair, and a bimonthly “international café” dialogue series. Foreign language conversation hours and meditation sessions also meet weekly.
