Imagine a better world. Make it happen.

Civic engagement is work that deepens people’s commitment to their community and the condition of their community. The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) believes the world should be a more just place for everyone and that we all must find our part in contributing to our communities. We believe that everyone's actions matter and that OSU students have the power to shape the world. We aim to foster leaders and change-makers. At CCE, we strive to create more healthy, caring, and equitable communities by engaging students in actively working to progress the community and world they want to live in. Join us!


The Center for Civic Engagement creates space for students to craft and advance their collective visions of social, economic, and environmental justice by facilitating community-engaged learning experiences. In partnership with community-based organizations, CCE provides direct service, advocacy, philanthropy, and other community engagement opportunities that allow students to work towards a more just, sustainable world. CCE builds community capacity, enhances students' leadership skills, and inspires positive change through connecting students’ interests and talents with community needs. Imagine a better world. Make it happen.
