Community Engagement

Welcome to the College of Education and Community Innovation. Our culture of engagement encourages students to ‘find their fit’ in careers and educational opportunities that serve community-based stakeholders (educators, public servants, community and social justice advocates, non-profit leaders to name a few).  Our faculty and staff are committed to aligning their teaching, service and scholarship activities around multiple themes of engaging, enriching and transforming our students and community partners’ development through high-impact learning practices.  If you have a desire to pursue a rewarding career working within your community, we may just have the right major or graduate program for you.  For more information contact: cecidean@gvsu.edu.

Learn how the former College of Community and Public Service students, now College of Education and Community Innovation (CECI) students, engage, enrich and transform their lives and those in their communities.
