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!

Due to the changing nature of social interactions in response to COVID-19 during spring 2020, the Scholarhip and New Student Financial Aid Center (Financial Aid) is suspending the 2019-20 community service requirement for Cincinnatus, UC Global, and UC National Outreach Scholarships. Renewal for 2020-21 awards will solely be based on meeting the 3.2 cumulative GPA requirement at the end of spring 2020.

For all scholars who have submitted service hours to date, we thank you and know that many people were aided and supported through your community service. We do hope that, in the spirit of our namesake Cincinnatus, all UC students will lend assistance when you can to persons and agencies with service requests as the pandemic subsides, social restrictions relax, and more needs in our communities are defined.
