Center for Civic Engagement
The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) is the nexus for community-based initiatives and civically engaged learning at Salem State University. Established as part of the University’s Strategic Plan to promote civic engagement, social justice, and connection to place, the CCE is responsible for developing and supporting programs that connect SSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni to the greater community.
Through reciprocal collaborations designed to address public issues and enhance academic learning, the Center promotes the importance of community involvement and the privileges and responsibilities inherent in civic participation. To accomplish this, the Center focuses on four main areas, the result of which can be seen through micro- and macro-level social change.
