Mission

Center for Community Engagement (CCE) takes seriously SUNY Plattsburgh’s responsibility as a place-based institution: we build bridges between our campus and our community. We promote civic engagement activities across campus and foster a culture of active citizenship and social responsibility for faculty, staff, students, and campus groups. CCE facilitates community partnerships, campus-community events, and encourages and supports learning through service and community engagement. Our goal is simple: an engaged campus and a stronger community.

Affiliated programs that advance the mission of CCE include: Center for Student Involvement, Center for Teaching Excellence, Institute for Ethics in Public Life, and the Partnership for Economic and Cultural Development.

In August 2016, SUNY Plattsburgh President John Ettling signed Campus Compact’s 30th Anniversary Action Statement, which demonstrates a renewed commitment to preparing students for democratic citizenship, building partnerships for change, and reinvigorating higher education for the public good.

SUNY Plattsburgh is a member of New York Campus Compact.
