Office of Community Collaboration renamed
The Office of Community Collaboration is changing its name to Community Engagement Center, effective immediately. The name change was approved after appropriate consultation with those affiliated with community and service learning programs, as well as the Faculty Senate.
The Office of Community Collaboration was established in 1997 to function as a central point of connection for faculty, students and community. In the past 10 years, the office has effectively engaged faculty, students and community partners through service learning, civic learning, and other community service programs. The Community Engagement Center will continue the successful programs and further highlight the valuable roles Sacramento State plays in the region.
