The CSCE empowers learning through experiential opportunities and academic exploration.
The Center for Scholarly and Civic Engagement (CSCE) connects faculty, students and community partners through academic initiatives.

What is Civic Engagement?
At Collin College, we define civic engagement as individual and collective actions designed to identify and address issues of public concern. Civic Engagement can take many forms, from individual volunteerism to organizational involvement to electoral participation. It can include efforts to directly address an issue, work with others in a community to solve a problem, or interact with the institutions of representative democracy.
CSCE supports and assists in the implementation of numerous Collin College program initiatives, including:
Alternative Break Service Program
Auteur Film Series
Community College Day at the Capital
