Center for Community Engagement

The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) connects the Bearcat community to the Cincinnati community through community service. Join our UC-CCE mailing list and engage with us on social media @UC_CCE to stay up to date.

For Coronavirus COVID-19 updates visit or call 513-556-7200.


Students can find opportunities to participate in semester-long volunteer opportunities such as Bearcat Buddies, dive in to a one-time volunteer need, join together for a community impact day, or find ongoing volunteer opportunities in the community all year long!

The CCE is focused primarily on virtual volunteer activities at this time. However, students are permitted to participate in COVID Careful in-person volunteer activities. The expectation is that students only engage with in-person volunteer activities through organizations that take precautions that are comparable to the university's own safety protocols.

Community Partners 

The CCE can help community partners connect with Bearcat volunteers and other university resources.

If your organization has opportunities for UC volunteers to safely support our neighbors during this period of social distancing, please contactact with more information.


During the current period of social distancing Center for Community Engagement staff are accessible via phone and email. Our staff would be happy to schedule a web meeting via Microsoft Teams or WebEx at a mutually agreeable time.

Our office shares spaces with a residence hall, so the entrance remains locked at all times. Visits to the CCE are by appointment only during this current phase of social distancing. To connect with the CCE call 513-556-1559 or contact us at
