Mission Statement

The Office of Civic and Community Engagement (CCE) fosters university-community collaboration by engaging the university’s academic resources in the enrichment of civic and community life in our local, national, and global communities.

Description

Our goals include developing new courses in which community-based partnerships are central to course learning outcomes; enhancing existing courses by integrating community engagement into the course curriculum; and creating new initiatives that bring multiple schools and disciplines together to work on shared community-based projects that promote positive social change. These courses and projects allow students to put theory into practice and understand the complexities of practical problem solving in real-world situations, thereby preparing them to be effective civic leaders.Our overarching goal is to develop teaching and research strategies that directly link academic scholarship to public practice.
