MSU’s Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement (CSLCE) is celebrating its 50th anniversary! The CSLCE is the oldest continuously operating service-learning center in the United States. From its inception in 1968, it has worked with academic and administrative units across campus to offer reciprocal, quality service-learning and civic engagement opportunities linking faculty and students with community partners.

We are honoring CSLCE’s 50th anniversary during 2018, and we want to make it a notable celebration for you and your fellow faculty, students, and community partners. You can help us by identifying the Champion Community Partners who have worked most closely with you to support our faculty, staff, and students in advancing the public purposes of higher education.


Nominate your Champion Community Partner by Friday, October 5, 2018, 11:59 p.m.
