Students spend months organizing and preparing for execution of the selected project. They are guided by a community advisory board and faculty from the College of Engineering, Computer Science and Construction Management (ECC).

Typical project guidelines include:

  • Organizations must be not-for-profit and classified as charitable, educational or cultural.
  • Funding for tools, equipment, materials and project supportive services can be included in the applicant’s project request. Fundraising requirements for project needs may be a deterrent to project selection depending on the magnitude of requested funding.
  • Applicants must complete the CSU, Chico ECC Application for Community Service Projects form, found at the bottom of the page.
  • Be clear and specific in the application. Incomplete or vague applications will generate questions, which will only delay a decision.
  • Selected organization(s) will be expected to execute a mutually agreed upon MOU.  Please review the non-negotiable insurance requirements prior to submitting an application (sample MOU is attached to the application).
  • E-mail the completed form to adbond@csuchico.edu.
  • Applications will be accepted throughout the year, and selected at the end of August annually.
