About Us

  Service Learning Logo

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:

1. Quality service-learning opportunities that allows students to meet their learning objectives through service to their community and reflection by:

  • fostering the partnership between community non-profit agencies and appropriate service-learning opportunities
  • support services for faculty and staff in developing service-learning objectives for courses
  • offering ongoing support to faculty, students, and non-profit partners

2. A service that connects community members with opportunities to volunteer by:

  • providing professional development opportunities through training and technical assistance
  • specialized leadership and service programming for students that include Alternative Spring and Winter Break programs, and Summer Civic Leadership retreats
