Get Involved at Central!

Experiential education means learning, engaging, reflecting, integrating.

Students can access opportunities to engage with communities through our Center for Community Engagement and Social Research, building reciprocal relationships with partners and gaining skills through collaboration. This can take place through volunteer opportunities, service learning experiences, community engagement practices, internships or research. Let us help guide you to get the most out of your education and the best return on your college investment.
