CCE Program Your Gift Can Help Support

Voter Engagement and Political Action

Through activities which promote and facilitate political engagement on campus and in the community, the CCE hopes to produce informed, engaged and active citizens who participate in public elections and related activities. Coordinated by a Political Engagement Coordination Team made up of staff, students, faculty and community members, these activities include Passion to Action events to increase student knowledge about relevant issues; voter registration drives; debates and candidate Q&As; internships; an election day celebration (providing a fun, festive atmosphere where students can vote on campus), and more. Learn more about the CCE's Voter Engagement and Political Action initiatives.

Binghamton University Community Schools

Binghamton University students are engaged with local youth in many meaningful ways throughout Broome County. In partnership with the College of Community and Public Affairs and local school districts, the CCE works to address the academic and social needs of our local youth. Binghamton University students and local youth benefit from various types of relationships. For more information, visit the Community Schools website.

Community-Engaged Learning and other faculty support initiatives

ASL and CEL courses infuse public service within academics to create high impact learning experiences for students that are mutually beneficial for community organizations and residents. Faculty across all schools on campus use community-engaged learning to deepen the learning experience for students and provide a direct benefit to the community. Courses and projects range from the development of strategic plans and marketing materials for nonprofit organizations to direct service in the form of public art projects, preparing and serving community meals, urban gardening, etc.
