As students begin to return to campus this fall, some community engagement opportunities will be limited due to social distancing guidelines and community partner capacity. However, the office is fully functioning, and we look forward to continuing to serve students, faculty and community partners through every means possible, including phone, email and online video meetings. Learn more about available CCE programs and services below.

Face masks and social distancing will be enforced for anyone entering the CCE office. Any student who wishes to speak with a CCE staff member is encouraged to call our office at 607-777-4287 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns that do not require face-to-face interaction.
CCE volunteer initiatives
Students can search the Service Listings for current volunteer opportunities. Students are responsible for ensuring that proper health and safety protocols are in place when volunteering in person. We are also encouraging organizations to think about virtual or remote opportunities they could offer, which will also be in the Service Listings and designated as such.
Check out some examples of local and national online and virtual service opportunities.
The Census Bureau has issued guidance that college students should still be counted at the residence they live while attending school, even if they have returned home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you live with roommates, you should still work together to submit just one census form for everyone at your address. If everyone at your apartment returned home before receiving the census instructions in the mail, or you no longer have access to those instructions, you can still respond by entering your address. If it is not possible to coordinate with your roommates, you can still submit an individual census response. Specific questions can be directed to Alison Handy Twang at 607-777-3083 or email@example.com.
Community-engaged learning courses
If you are a faculty member teaching a community-engaged learning course, the CCE can help you develop a plan for modifying your course for an online learning environment. For specific questions about your course, contact Barry Brenton at 607-777-2859 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are some online and virtual service opportunities to get you started.
Ongoing faculty academic support initiatives
The CCE will continue to actively support all of our Faculty Academic Support Initiatives to offer the delivery of programs and resources for faculty interested in developing and sustaining high-impact community-based learning and research across all disciplines. These initiatives include: consulting on community-based course development; connections to community partners; resources on community-engaged research; online professional development workshops; a course designation process for community-engaged learning; The Community Engaged Teaching Fellows Program; Community Engagement Faculty Teaching Grants; and a faculty e-newsletter.
Any community partner who wishes to speak with a CCE staff member may call our office at 607-777-4287 or email us at email@example.com. We will respond to voicemails as soon as possible.
