Community Engagement

Change Lives Here

RCAH Students Are Changing the World Through the Arts and Humanities.

Community engagement is where the arts and humanities come together to accomplish RCAH’s mission of building a better world—and as an RCAH student, you will play a vital part in it. Since its founding, RCAH has formed close partnerships with dozens of community organizations in the greater Lansing area, across Michigan, and around the world.

These partnerships provide dynamic learning opportunities for students to use their arts and humanities education through classes, internships, jobs, and other interactions.

RCAH Community Engagement Efforts Include...

  • Ongoing work with Lansing’s Refugee Development Center, including a summer camp at RCAH for refugee middle school and high school students
  • A major sculpture project entitled “Gateway to Inclusion” in collaboration with Lansing's Peckham, Inc., vocational rehabilitation center at Lansing’s Capital City Airport
  • Ongoing community engagement work with small, indigenous communities by students and staff in the RCAH Program on Sustainability in Costa Rica
