Center for Civic Engagement and Service-Learning

How will you help your community?



The Center for Civic Engagement and Service-Learning works to strengthen the community through experiences centered on service-learning, volunteerism, and civic engagement. The departmental mission essentially addresses two needs by facilitating:

  • Quality service-learning opportunities that allows students to meet their learning objectives through service to their community and reflection.
  • A service that connects community members with opportunities to volunteer. The center offers ongoing support to faculty, students, and non-profit partners, professional development opportunities (training and technical assistance), and specialized leadership and service programming for students. We offer a variety of programs both in class and outside of class.
