The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) advances community-based programs on the Sonoma State University campus. CCE supports faculty in developing community-based teaching that integrates academic theory with community service and research that is inclusive of community partners and students to address local problems. By incorporating these projects into the curriculum, we teach students to be active citizens and that the theories taught in the classroom do apply to real-world issues.
Central to the mission of the CCE are several goals:
To support and promote high quality, reciprocal community-university partnerships that are firmly rooted in the curriculum;
To foster the development of a civic perspective in education.
