Community Pillars

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.
