Investment in Our Students

CSU, Chico defines Service Learning as "academic study linked to community service through structured reflection so that each reinforces the other." CNAP provides unique, hands-on opportunities and experiences that reinforce the material and information learned in the classroom.

University - community partnerships drive the development of CNAP programs. CSUC students are fully engaged in all aspects of partnership development, program design, implementation, management, and evaluation. CNAP provides paid and unpaid civic engagement opportunities for more than 100 multi-disciplinary university students per year. The Center has been effective at increasing recruitment and retention of underrepresented minority students and with an annual student payroll of $250,000, assisting financially needy students in initiating and completing their university education by providing paid student employment opportunities.

A collective CNAP, CSUC, and community partner goal is to assist communities in building the infrastructure needed to meet the health and educational needs of area residents. CNAP provides leadership, diversity, resources, university students and well-trained graduates, as well as funding to expand services and help build the infrastructure necessary for north state communities to develop, implement, and sustain efforts.

The goal is that they will learn health promotion skills, acquire the ability to identify needs and strategies to address those needs, integrate civic engagement experiences with the lifelong practice of “giving back”, network with area school and community leaders, and ultimately make their career contributions here in the north state where they are critically needed.
