Our Common Ground

Our Common Ground provides resources, services and educational opportunities to the college and surrounding community that serve to nurture our local economy, human and environmental health, and biblically based justice.

Our Objectives

Our Common Ground pursues three broad objectives. First, it offers our college, and our students in particular, opportunities to put faith into action, move learning from theory to praxis.

Secondly, the center serves as a bridge between the college and the community. It offers a space where students, faculty and staff can share their expertise with community members and where community members and organizations can bring their expertise to the college.

Finally, the Center celebrates our community by focusing on educational activities that promote the overall sustainability of our community.

Upcoming Events

Our goal is to sponsor scheduled educational opportunities and events of interest to both Houghton students and community members.
