Center for Citizenship & Community
Encouraging lifelong civic engagement.
“Individuals who are civically engaged recognize they do not live alone in the world but understand how their decisions and actions affect others.”
The method of the CCC is not charity or volunteerism but civic engagement, which makes teachers and learners of all involved. Our philosophy is rooted in our understanding of civic engagement as a strategy for teaching civic mindedness and citizenship. We approach these practices through fostering critical listening, appreciation of diversity, long-term commitment, and self-reflection.
Our goal is to help students discover new perspectives, explore ways to sustain healthy communities, and fully consider what it means to be local and global citizens. We want students to make informed decisions about their future and not only find jobs but also pursue long-lasting, fulfilling careers.
