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.
As our communities respond to the threat of COVID-19, community engagement needs to look a little different. Find virtual opportunities for meaningful service and suggestions on other ways you can support our communities, resources to adapt curricular engagement, and sources for emergency assistance for our community partners.
