In addition to supporting individual students or clubs in their civic engagement activities, faculty can also choose to integrate CE into their courses to provide new ways for students to satisfy the Arts & Sciences CE Cornerstone. CE can be integrated into courses in any discipline. Please contact us for assistance or more information, or to share a resource of your own.
