Center for Community Engagement

The Center for Community Engagement supports faculty and students as they put their ideas to work in the world.

The Center offers opportunities for students and faculty members to link learning inside and outside of the classroom, tackle problems that matter, and develop skills that they can apply in other settings. The CCE supports community-based learning courses, undergraduate research, creative endeavors, and partnerships on and off campus.
