Center for Civic Engagement

Our College of Medicine students are involved in a variety of outreach and volunteer activities. These provide them experiences outside of the hospital and an opportunity to help the community.

That "community" can be a few blocks away at a school... or the next county over in a migrant worker camp... or halfway around the world at a free clinic-wherever help is needed.

Our Center for Civic Engagement office is part of the Division of Student Affairs, located in Weiskotten Hall.
