Bonner Center for Civic Engagement

Engaging with Our Richmond Region

Community engagement is a strategic priority at the University of Richmond. Students, faculty, and staff engage with organizations across our region and beyond through volunteering, community-based learning and research, summer civic fellowships, and more.

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) is committed to supporting student engagement, faculty and staff engagement, community relationships, and institutional engagement, and is home to one of the largest Bonner Scholars Programs in the country.

Our lastest annual report, Spiders Engage, Spiders Reflect, features reflections from students, faculty, and community partners.
