Community Engagement

"Community colleges are in an ideal position to promote civic engagement, as their mission emphasizes the role of the institution in serving the community. The challenge, however, lies with finding ways to engage community college students in volunteer or civic related activities, as this unique group of students typically has fewer opportunities to engage with faculty and peers or participate in social and academic activities outside the classroom" (Taggart & Crisp, 2011).
