The Center for Campus and Community Engagement has officially changed its name to the Center for Community Engagement (CCE). While this development may appear small, the achievements the center has made in the last few years in connecting OHIO campuses and communities are not so minor.

September 29, 2023

At the second annual Community Engagement Symposium on Sept. 29, Ohio University announced the first ever Outstanding Community Partner Awards. These community partners were recognized for their meritorious collaboration with an Ohio University campus.

Across Athens and all five regional campuses, candidates were nominated by either an Ohio University student, faculty, or staff member for their contributions to partnerships supporting community-engaged research, curricular or co-curricular engagement, special projects or other initiatives that promote mutual benefits for the Ohio University and the community.
