Nonprofit and Community Partner Resources
The Center for Civic Engagement works in partnership with community and nonprofit leaders to connect students, faculty and staff with opportunities to build community capacity and impact positive community-driven change.
Match Your Organization’s Need to Talent on Campus
If you have a project, ongoing internship or service opportunity, share it with us. The center publicizes opportunities ranging from introductory service experiences to immersive summer internship programs. We also partner with faculty who incorporate community-based projects into their courses or research. The center is your one stop shop to communicate opportunities at your organization. Post opportunities through WildcatSync.
