Community Resources

“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up in mine, then let us work together.”
— Lilla Watson


We are always growing our partnerships, and would love to talk story about how we might partner with your organization or business to connect faculty and/or students with authentic community issues. Please contact to learn more!


The CCE hosts a database called Collaboratory, which documents the many ways that UH Hilo engages with our community. Training on the database is ongoing, but this will allow community members to more easily collaborate with UH faculty and staff on projects in the future.

Non-credit Classes

Each semester the CCE offers a limited number of non-credit classes that are open to community members. In fall 2023, we are offering Recreational Paddling and Japanese Language.


Please contact to learn more about partnering with us!

In 2020, the CCE implemented a new software called Collaboratory that was created by the University of North Carolina Greensboro to capture the various forms of community engagement and public service that often takes place in higher education. Click below to visit Collaboratory.
