Campus + Community
Commitment – Collaboration – Creation
Launched in the 2022-23 school year, Campus + Community is a center dedicated to supporting ethical and mutually beneficial engaged scholarship at UC Santa Cruz. Engaged scholarship includes all scholarly activities and teaching that is conducted in partnership with community-based agencies, and organizations locally, across the country, and internationally. Community engagement is a core component of UCSC’s mission and vision, which include values of social and environmental responsibility and a commitment to community engagement, as well as dedication to diversity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship. With resources and infrastructure from the Institute for Social Transformation, Campus + Community supports our campus to effectively demonstrate what UCSC accomplishes with our community partners and how these partnerships are transformational for all involved.
