Service/Civic Engagement Opportunities

The CCCAC offers multiple opportunities to engage in service learning and civic engagement opportunities! 

What is Civic Engagement? 

Civic engagement or civic participation is any individual or group activity addressing issues of public concern. Citizens acting alone or together to protect public values or make a change or difference in the community are common types of civic engagement.

What is Service Learning?

Service learning must be credit-bearing, fully integrated into the course syllabus, and closely related to the intended learning outcomes. The purpose of civic and service learning is not only learning how to serve the community better but also learning how to understand an academic subject better through engaging the community. In other words, service learning enhances academic learning as well as builds moral character in liberal education.

The following CCCAC programs are credited as service-learning:
