Welcome to Civic Engagement

Learn about all of the community engagement activities on our campus!

Collaboratory is a secure database that collects community engagement and public service activities for our campus. It is a measurement and tracking tool that informs institutional strategy and an educational tool that distinguishes the spectrum of engagement and service activities. It is a public-facing platform that showcases campus partnerships to provide inspiration and validation.

To get started, log in to the CSU Chico Collaboratory portal and create your own profile.

For help creating an activity, you can find instructions here.

For more information, you can find a Collaboratory tutorial here.

Ways Collaboratory helps CSU Chico

  1. Builds a comprehensive story about CSU Chico’s community engagement (e.g., community-engaged research, curricular and co-curricular programs, outreach, partnerships). 
  2. Identifies opportunities to create synergy and foster collaboration around our communities’ most pressing issues (e.g., public health, education, economic, workforce development). 
  3. Supports fundraising and development efforts that align with CSU Chico’s mission and vision. 
  4. Collects data for local, state, national and international representatives as well as accreditation, strategic planning, awards, and recognitions.
