About the Center for Community Engagement 

The Center for Community Engagement serves as the campus hub for community engagement, providing diverse student opportunities and institutional vision and direction. CCE aims to provide every USU student with opportunities to find their passion, apply their education, and make a positive and meaningful contribution to the greater community through service and civic engagement. CCE works together with local, regional, national, and international partners to tackle critical issues identified by the community.

The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) was established in 2013, bringing together the complimentary missions of our six community engagement programs. Serving as the campus hub for community engagement, the CCE provides diverse student engagement opportunities and institutional vision and direction. Working in partnership with local, regional, national, and international communities, the CCE aims to provide every USU student with opportunities to find their passion, apply their education, and make a positive and meaningful contribution to community. The CCE is currently leading the institution in obtaining the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, a prestigious distinction that acknowledges USU’s longstanding commitment to the greater community, as well as its dedication to developing Citizen Scholars through community-engaged teaching and research.
