Center for Campus and Community Engagement
The Center for Campus and Community Engagement connects students, faculty, staff, and communities (from local to global) to create and maintain mutually beneficial academic, research, and service partnerships that foster resilient communities and life-long engaged citizens.
The colorful dragon hoisted by members of the Athens Asian American Alliance (AAAA), Asian-American Pacific Islander Student Union (AAPISU), and AAPI-Lead made its second appearance at the homecoming parade this year. The groups serve to celebrate and advocate for their communities on and off campus.
Before graduating with her master's degree in theater, Alyssa Embry partnered with Passion Works Studio and the Athens County Board of Developmental Disabilities to put her accessible arts research to work and created a sensory-friendly theater experience for her thesis.
The Women's Center’s mission is to act as a catalyst promoting awareness, education, and advocacy about women, gender, and diversity at Ohio University and in its surrounding communities. Much of their programming is intentionally designed to reinforce this goal by providing opportunities for OHIO students and Athens community members to connect with one another and learn together.
One program that fosters relationships between OHIO students, staff, faculty and community members is the Mentoring Women Program, in which mentees are paired with a female mentor in their personal and professional fields of interest and meet throughout the semester.
The CCCE's newsletters are one of the ways we aim to keep people informed on the latest news and upcoming events in and around Ohio University campuses and southeast Ohio.
