Civic Engagement

We're committed to our community. For 50 years, Columbus State has provided high-quality affordable education and responded to workforce needs. Now, we're redoubling our commitment to community service.

Many professors include community service in their classes, and the college sends volunteers to 17 elementary schools in Columbus and Delaware for an annual Read-In. Our entire staff will undertake service projects on Sept. 26 to honor our 50th anniversary.

Columbus State is pursuing a Civic Engagement plan as part of our Strategic Process. We are exploring ways to scale up our existing community service programs. We are working on a system to match up students with volunteer opportunities, and we are pursuing partnerships to become a leader in civic engagement.

We are developing these plans over Summer-Fall 2013, so watch this space for more information.
