Not sure how to get started with community engagement? We're here to help. On this page, you'll find ways the CCE can help as a resource for community engagement.

Engagement Advising

The Engagement Advising program is one of the best introductions to community engagement at Amherst, and it's available year-round. The program matches students looking to get started with students who have substantial engagement experience. Advisors meet with their advisees, get to know their interests, and make tailored recommendations for getting started. As an added bonus, these meetings can be off-campus over something delicious.


We manage six 7-passenger vans and one 5-Passenger Prius available for reservation by students, groups or classes involved in service and activism or other forms of community involvement.

Meeting Space

Our office lobby is available as a meeting space to student and community groups. Follow the link to fill out the online reservation form.
