Connecting Community Organizations and USU

Utah State University (USU) Center For Community Engagement (CCE) offers several ways for students to engage with community organizations like yours, including Community-Engaged Learning (CEL), volunteer opportunities, Community-Engaged Research, and more. The CCE strives to build reciprocal campus-community partnerships that enable students to utilize knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom to tackle real-world problems identified by the community. Through our partnership options, we hope to bridge the gap between campus and community to create a healthier, safer, and more sustainable community for us all.
