Practice your Purpose with Passion in Service and Dialogue
The Center for Civic Engagement offers many opportunities for students to become “ethical, compassionate citizens who are committed to making responsible contributions within a community, nation, and world.” We provide opportunities for you to do this through volunteer service, dialogues across difference, and voter engagement. We want to provide leadership opportunities for students to grow personally and professionally in immersive experiences.
Learning Through Service | Discovering Through Action
Prepare students to participate in a just and democratic society by providing experiences in service-learning, civic dialogue, and community engagement inside and outside the classroom through mutually beneficial partnerships that inspire a responsibility towards a community, nation, and world.
The CCE will be the hub of community-engaged, transformative learning by cultivating community partnerships and providing immersive opportunities for students to practice their purpose with passion.
