Center for Community Engagement

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

For COVID-19 updates visit uc.edu/publichealth or call 513-556-7200.

Students 

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

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

Community Partners 

The CCE can help community partners connect with Bearcat volunteers and other university resources. A great place for non-profit organizations to start to tap into UC talent and energy is to request an account on volunteer.uc.edu by completing our intake form.

If your organization has opportunities for UC volunteers to support their neighbors, contactact community.engagement@uc.edu or consider joining us on volunteer.uc.edu through the link above.
