Welcome to the Center for Civic Engagement (CCE)!

At the CCE, we believe the world should be a more just place for everyone. We believe that everyone's actions matter and that OSU students have the power to shape the world. Through engaging students in education, direct service, and advocacy in the greater Corvallis community, we cultivate leaders and change-makers. At CCE, we work to create more sustainable, caring, and equitable communities. Join us!

To get involved, check out our upcoming event below, our civic engagement database, submit an opportunity to our weekly newsletter, or sign up to receive it.

There are different types of service, from direct service, to service-learning, to simply adjusting your lifestyle and consumer choices.

Jobs & Internships

Internships, jobs, and careers are an incredible way to contribute to the common good and be of service to others and your community.

News Readership

News readership is an important piece of civic engagement and way to stay current and up to date with important local, national, and global news.

Community Values Award

The Community Values Award was devised by the CCE and the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life, and is given on a yearly basis to the Greek chapter that records the highest average civic engagement hours per member, allowing smaller chapters to compete with larger chapters.
