Office of Civic Engagement

For Community Partners

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Civic Engagement at Chico State! This is your starting point for connecting with students and faculty for partnerships and projects.

Things to know about working with campus

Timeline: Most classes plan at least one semester ahead, so the activity can be included in the course syllabus. This means planning at least 6 months in advance. In general, courses follow this timeline:

  • Projects for Fall semester: Contact by April
  • Projects for Spring semester: Contact by September

It may take time to develop a course and that there may already be existing community partners working with a course.

Generally, what are you looking to do?

Student Volunteers for a one-time or short-term project

Ways to connect to students:

Interns for a Semester/Year-Long Commitment

Many of our programs and colleges place students in the community as interns. By way of example, Social work provides students with a unique opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom to practice in the field.
