The Community Engagement Center at Pitzer College is dedicated to utilizing institutional power, partner collaboration, faculty expertise, and student action to advance social justice on our campus and in the surrounding community.

In this area of engagement the CEC provides programmatic support to community partners who are addressing education equity issues in our community through tutoring, mentorship, and similar programs. This support will be provided through student recruitment campaigns, student engagement and technology support for community partners and student clubs  to facilitate remote programming.

Civic engagement is a key component to advancing legislative policy and social change with our communities. By participating in activities like letter writing, voter drives, legislative campaigns, and community organizing students will learn how to connect local issues to broader state, federal, and global issues through practical experience and skill development.

The CEC supports faculty and students working with community partners on building a stronger, vibrant online presence. Whether it be through sharing social media campaigns, finding strategy for outreach or providing resources through course engagement, this form of involvement has been imperative to our community partners.

This pillar supports the research and grant writing needs of our community partners by leveraging the human and material resources of the colleges.
