Transforming Student Learning

We connect students to opportunities to enhance their education outside the classroom, while addressing community-identified needs and building their understanding of the larger social contexts that shape their off-campus experiences.

Deepening Faculty Engagement

Our University faculty is the bridge between community needs and student exploration. We help faculty partner with local organizations to bring an experiential lens to classroom concepts or access living laboratories to put research into practice and contribute to meaningful change.

Partnering with the Community

Sustained, reciprocal relationships with local organizations that meet community-identified needs are the foundation of the CCE's work. Our partners look to us for assistance in identifying opportunities and the best paths for meeting their goals, whether it's a team of student volunteers, or an extended partnership with a faculty member.
