In honor of National Volunteer Week, the Center for Civic Engagement & Learning (CCEL) continues our Social Change Series by highlighting Social Responsibility through a week of projects and events. Students will multiple opportunities to engage in a virtual or on-campus service project, including fleece blanket making, supporting people-powered research, or providing feedback to incarcerated poets. Or, explore an educational program, such as Prosocial Bystander Training, Navigating Virtual Volunteering Info Session or a Career Lab resume review about marketing service on your resume. Learn more about the events planned for the week on CCEL's CampusGroups and register for the projects and programs!


Social Change Series

CCEL believes it takes multiple forms of civic engagement working together to advance social change and to address systemic injustice. By highlighting monthly a different form of civic engagement that contributes to social change (i.e. community service, philanthropy, advocacy, and more), the Social Change Series offers students an opportunity to delve deeper into some of these forms while also obtaining a more holistic picture of the social change wheel. Stay tuned to CCEL’s website and CampusGroups page for lectures and corresponding programs that align with the monthly form of focus and that offer ways to engage.


Service Days

CCEL's Service Days give students the opportunity to contribute to the local community at least one day a semester. Service days include the Saturdays of Service, CCEL's New Student Service Day, the Graduate Community Service event, and other special events. Stay tuned to CCEL's website for future service day plans!
