Civic Engagement Starts with Passion

students paintingAlfred State provides you with a leadership development programming, community-based learning opportunities, and civic-minded student organizations that help you identify and translate your passion into community action. We seek to develop leaders that will make a positive difference in the world.

The Alfred State experience allows you to discover your strengths and identify the issues that ignite your curiosity and sense of social responsibility. Once this is accomplished, we help you channel this passion into action through community service, cultural immersion experiences, activist initiatives, political involvement, and much more.

The Center for Civic Engagement works together with the community as well as faculty and staff to facilitate opportunities to make a difference in our community- whether here in Alfred or around the world. Regardless of your interests and background, you will find opportunity to bring your learning to life impacting your community in a positive way.
