Announcements and Upcoming Events

      • We changed our name! It is with much excitement that the Office of Service-Learning & Volunteer Programs (OSLVP) share with the campus community that we have officially changed our office name to the Center for Civic Engagement & Social Impact (CCESI). The name change was motivated and informed by feedback provided to us from students, faculty, staff, administration, and our community partners. Collaborative reflection, deliberation, and benchmarking led us to selecting a name that better reflects our mission, while more fully capturing the scope of our programs and services.
