Welcome to the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning. Our purpose is to enhance the educational experience of Illinois State University students through greater involvement and engagement with the community. We offer a number of programs and resources that support this endeavor. We invite students, faculty, staff, and community partners to become involved and work with us to create learning opportunities that enhance the community—local, statewide, nationally and internationally. Come to the center and make use of our resource library. Work with our staff to find an existing opportunity or to create a new one. We welcome your suggestions and comments and hope you’ll become a part of our efforts.
