CCL fosters community-university collaborations that analyze the complexity of social issues and take actions to promote equitable and inclusive communities.
We will create a community of scholars and practitioners dedicated to advancing social change by serving as the convener of campus, community, and higher education networks.
Broad Student Reach
We will further the university’s mission to produce graduates who make distinctive impact upon the world by developing partnerships and resources that increase the CCL’s capacity to serve Rice undergraduates.
We will work to embed the civic into the identity of the Rice campus by reframing current activities through the lens of civic leadership and creating new spaces, both conceptual and physical, for civic identity to develop.
We will strengthen our infrastructure to provide an academically grounded, community-engaged curriculum to Rice undergraduates, support faculty-engaged teaching and research, and sustain high-impact community partnerships.
