To ensure the health and safety of students and staff, the CCCE will be open Monday through Thursday from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. At this time, only four students will be permitted to use the CCCE common area at a time (and two in the conference room). To schedule time to use the CCCE space (or the conference room), we are using SignUp Genius.

CCCE pro-staff are on a weekly rotating office schedule. If you need to meet with a particular CCCE pro-staff member, you can look at their individual Google Calendars and reserve a meeting time or you can send them an e-mail to set up a time to meet.

The Center for Community and Civic Engagement (CCCE — pronounced “trip-see-ee”) connects the Carleton community to its broader public purpose and contributes to students’ preparation for life after Carleton as civic-minded graduates.

We are a hub for:

  • Real-world learning that contributes to a more just, thriving, and sustainable community;
  • Reciprocal community-campus partnerships that advance shared goals; and
  • Civic agency and collaboration in the public sphere that is attentive to 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).
