    Welcome to the Center for Scholarly and Civic Engagement (CSCE). 
    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.  These programs and activities focus on scholarship, leadership and community involvement, and serve as catalysts to expand and enhance learning for students.  Activities and programs also promote democratic values of citizenship, service, and civic engagement.

    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.

    An education that teaches you to understand something about the world has done only half of the assignment. The other half is to teach you to do something about making the world a better place.
