All CCE goals seek to promote Community Engagement in all of its forms by working with all of our stakeholder groups. The following represent the highest order goals of the CCE, which we seek to fulfill through a range of objectives. (For information on specific objectives and activities, please refer to our strategic plan and annual reports.)

  1. Expanding the number and range of opportunities for involvement in Community Engagement at CI.
  2. Promoting awareness and understanding of high impact practices and models for Community Engagement.
  3. Cultivating mutually beneficial and long-term partnerships between campus and community partners.
  4. Institutionalizing Community Engagement on campus, both through formal initiatives and informal practices.


The California State University has a commitment to promoting community engagement among students, and mandates that each campus support a unit for that purpose. Since 2000, the California Call to Service initiative has funded efforts to support the development of courses with service-learning components and to create or expand service-learning offices at all CSU campuses. In addition to that system-level commitment, CI has a campus commitment to Community Engagement, reflected in its role as one of four campus "mission pillars." The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) was established in 2006, supported by resources at both the system and campus levels, for the purpose of promoting community engagement and service learning in all of their forms at CI (see SP 06-15).
