Center for Civic and Global Engagement

The Center for Civic and Global Engagement provides many student resources and leadership opportunities for all of our students at SCC. We believe that your campus experience and education can far exceed your time in the classroom. Statistically it has been shown that students that are engaged in clubs and organization, leadership classes, retreats, and community service activities have excelled in business and in life.

Check out our list of resources below and see if there is something that fits for you!

  1. Commuter Information
  2. Housing

    While SCC does not have on-campus housing, a bulletin board in the Student Center's Cafeteria hallway provides posting for students looking for housing or roommates. These 30-day postings must be stamped in the Center for Civic and Global Engagement Office. It is advisable that students personally inspect any accommodations or request references before entering into housing arrangements. Check out the following link for helpful tips when you begin to look for housing.

    SCC does not endorse any of the following, but students may consider using one of the following resources to find housing while attending SCC:
    American Homestay Network
    Collegiate Housing Services
    Universal Student Housing

  3. Phone, FAX, & More!
    FREE to students is the use of a phone for local calls and a FAX machine for school-related needs. Local calls must be kept to a maximum of five (5) minutes and faxes can be no more than eight (8) pages.
  4. Student Accident & Health Insurance

    The Maricopa County Community Colleges District (MCCCD) no longer offers an optional student health insurance plan for domestic students. You may buy an individual plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace (Exchange), or with any other insurance company offering individual plans. For more information go to

    The Student Public Policy Forum (SPPF) is an academic program that provides an overview of local, state and national public policy-making. A focus is placed on experiential learning and leadership development through engagement in the public policy process.

Students from all backgrounds, majors and political experiences are encouraged to participate. The SPPF Spring Academy culminates in travel to Washington, D.C.
