History

In 1993, the Center for Civic Engagement opened its doors as the Community Service Learning Center. Established by a task force of faculty, students, and community representatives and led by Dr. Bob Howell and Dr. Don Bushaw, the Community Service Learning Center had an important role as a centralized university office responsible for student civic engagement and service learning.

On June 1, 2007, the Community Service Learning Center became the Center for Civic Engagement, a reflection of national trends and the expanding scope of the Center.
