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 services activities have excelled in business and in life.
