Community Engagement Scholars Program

The Community Engagement Scholars Program (CESP) is a program for students who want to make a committment to community engagement during their undergraduate experience.  Students complete volunteer hours, engage in reflective workshops, and complete a 1 credit senior capstone project. Because of the rigorous nature of the program, students are also recognized by the board of regents with a notation on their official transcript and a medal of distinction. The program is open to all undergraduate students in every major and college.
