Civic Engagement

The CHC has earned acclaim statewide and nationally for its community health outreach and staff achievements. Not coincidentally, the CHC’s student internship and employment program has been widely hailed as a model of civic engagement and service learning.

Providing Opportunities

The CHC provides civic engagement and service learning opportunities to more than 120 university students each year. These structured internships—a requirement to apply for CHC student employment, another civic engagement opportunity—are open to university students from all colleges and disciplines.

Partnerships in the Community

The center is also eager to partner with the larger Northern California community, including medical professionals (such as pediatricians and family practitioners), preschools, K-12 school districts, farmers, food banks, departments of public health and social services, non-profit organizations, and private businesses interested in worksite wellness services.
