The Center for Community Engagement provides resources to build a culture of civic responsibility and engaged learning at Eastern. The Center creates sustainable and effective relationships with community partners that benefit the local community, provide students with valuable life and employability skills, and support faculty in developing high-impact curricular practices. Opportunities are available in tutoring and mentoring in area schools, juvenile and adult rehabilitation, programs focused on cultural awareness, hunger and homelessness, animal rehabilitation, and health and wellness.

COVID-19 UPDATE
The Center for Community Engagement will be following all of the guidelines put in place by the University regarding social distancing, masks, and precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We will not be providing transportation to sites during the Fall, 2020 semester. The Center is offering virtual volunteer programs as well as project-based activities that will support our community. Check this webpage often for updates and Eastern students can view available programs on EWEB under Center for Community Engagement.
