The Higher Education Network for Community Engagement (HENCE) arose from a demonstrated high level of commitment to cooperation across diverse engagement-related organizations in order to encourage the further development and improvement of community engagement. Now a virtual federation of higher education community engagement leadership organizations, HENCE serves as an incubator for collaborative activities to increase impact on the field, reduce duplication, address gaps in activities and resources, advocate for national support for engagement, and promote consistency in practices and policies related to community engagement.
