The Center for Community Engagement engages the university and community in creating a just and civil society where every member functions as an agent of social change.

We enrich students’ educational experiences, providing opportunities to:

  • Participate in community engagement initiatives that meet societal needs,
  • Apply academic instruction to service projects that address significant community issues,
  • Conduct action-oriented research that makes significant contributions to the community,
  • Enhance leadership skills.

What is Service-Learning?
Service learning is a method of teaching that combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service, giving students real-world learning experiences that enhance their academic learning while providing a tangible benefit for the community. This form of learning emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility.

* IRA Service-Learning Reimbursement Program Funding Available

The CCE offers IRA Funds to reimburse faculty and students for costs associated with service-learning/ community-based course activities that directly relate to the course’s service learning goals and objectives, are consistent with service learning best practices, and meet other criteria as detailed in our Procedures and Guidelines.


Applications received by the initial deadline receive priority consideration although applications will be accepted after the initial deadline. Funds will be awarded based upon the criteria noted in the CCE IRA Service Learning Reimbursement Program Procedures and Guidelines and on the availability of funds.

* Service Learning Faculty, are your service learning students covered by SAFECLIP or SPLIP, the university’s student liability insurance?

Your students are covered if:

  • Your course and community partners are included on SL Pro
  • Your students are registered for their placement sites on SL Pro
  • A service learning agreement is in place for your community partners.

If any one of these are not true for your service learning class, then contact us immediately and we will be glad to assist you.
