The Center for Civic Engagement's purpose is to bring clarity of vision and shared purpose to Illinois State University’s efforts in the area of civic engagement — one of our core values.

The scope for the Center for Civic Engagement is broad and includes in-class and out-of-class learning and experiences that partner with the local community as well as the global community. Although the center is not the sole provider of campus civic engagement initiatives, it supports existing programs and serves as a catalyst to create, coordinate and expand future programming.
