COVID Guidance for Carleton Students Entering Community Settings

The Center for Community and Civic Engagement (CCCE — pronounced “trip-see-ee”) is a hub for 

  • experiential learning that contributes to more just, thriving, and sustainable communities;
  • reciprocal community-campus partnerships that advance shared priorities; and
  • building civic agency and practicing collaboration that is attentive to racial equity, power, and positionality.

We support Academic Civic Engagement courses, student-led community initiatives, fellowships, volunteer opportunities, community-based work study jobs, and more. Our focal issue areas include Food and Environmental Justice, Educational Equity, Health and Belonging, and Peace, Conflict & Democracy.

Civic learning and community engagement are a key part of the Carleton experience. 63% of senior respondents said they’ve applied their academic learning through an assignment in the community. Outside of the classroom, 59% have volunteered in the community and 30% participate in politics beyond voting (Enrolled Student Survey, 2019).
