Community Engagement & Service Learning
Community Engagement & Service Learning (CE/SL) are integral parts of higher education. The University and community are critical stakeholders in addressing economic, environmental and social issues.
The Community Engagement Collaborative aims to promote, support and oversee CE/SL at SJSU. CEC strives to connect faculty, staff, students, community organizations and members in partnerships that share knowledge, skills, values, power, resources, results and recognition in reciprocal appreciation throughout the engagement.
The Collaborative of primary community engagement entities offers a variety of opportunities for involvement in Silicon Valley and beyond. This website is your gateway to CE/SL at SJSU. (Students may also inquire of CE/SL within their academic department.)
SJSU is offering a new, and fun community engagement class 157SL, cross listed as APSC 157SL, COMM 157SL, EDUC 157SL, ENGR 157SL, HA157, and SCI157SL
