The triad mission of the College moves our region forward. CECS’s community engagement is key to its fulfillment of that mission. The College’s outreach and engagement initiatives make a difference in the lives of our students and those in communities across our region.
Enabling social and economic progress through mutually beneficial outreach partnerships enhances our students’ experiential learning, and strengthens the value of their degrees. Outreach partnerships provide exposure to real-world, industry environments, allowing our students to enter the workforce with applicable hands-on experience and critical thinking skills.
The internships, senior design capstone projects with public and private sector partners, service efforts by the College’s student organizations, and other outreach initiatives inspire and empower scholarship, public service, and entrepreneurism while expanding the College’s service learning and civic engagement.
