The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) at UH Hilo creates and sustains opportunities for community-engaged teaching and learning. Our primary mission is to integrate community-based projects into course curriculum, creating opportunities for students to learn through the application of knowledge to authentic, meaningful and relevant local issues. These activities increase students’ sense of purpose, engagement and belonging to UH Hilo and the broader community. By understanding how education and research can be responsive to community needs, the CCE contributes to the university’s role in building a healthy, vibrant community for all.
