Community Engagement

Welcome to The Office of Community Engagement!

 Our Vision

The Office of Community Engagement invites CSUN students, faculty and staff to rise and become actively contributing citizens, flourishing in reciprocal community partnerships. We create high impact community engagement practices based on the principles of reciprocity, viability, and community connectivity. 

Our Mission

OCE enriches scholarship; research and creative activity; enhances curriculum; prepares educated, engaged citizens; strengthens democratic values and civic responsibility; addresses critical social issues and contributes to the public good.
