Collaborative for Community Engagement
The Collaborative for Community Engagement challenges students and faculty to integrate rigorous liberal arts scholarship with collaborative community-based work in ways that strengthen and transform both in the process. In the tradition of liberal education and its emphasis on active citizenship, we provide a continuum of opportunities for the Colorado College community to deepen and contextualize classroom learning by engaging in reciprocal and sustainable collaborations with local, regional, national, and global partners. By fostering skills for planning, implementing and examining civic action, the Collaborative facilitates leadership development and promotes a social responsibility that is reflective, imaginative, and self-aware.
The Collaborative for Community Engagement supports and facilitates a wide range of programming designed to meet these six learning outcomes. From student-run organizations to a community-engaged leadership certificate program, from community-based research to living learning communities, our programs engage a diverse group of stakeholders from the campus and community to promote the common good and propel academic learning into the world.
