The UCLA Center for Community Engagement promotes community engagement for undergraduates and faculty through the integration of teaching, research and community-engaged learning. The Center supports individual faculty members and academic units with all stages of community-engaged course development and implementation, and can help connect instructors with community organizations that are interested in partnering on courses and research projects.

The Center’s staff is available to consult with instructors to explore models of community-engaged teaching that best suit learning goals for courses at all levels of the curriculum, from introductory classes to advanced electives and capstones across the disciplines. We also offer pedagogy workshops and manage the Chancellor’s Award for Community-Engaged Scholars, and can help connect faculty with national and international networks that advance community-engaged teaching and public scholarship in higher education.
