Make a Difference Day – Cleveland State’s fall day of service takes over 200 students, alumni and faculty/staff to area non-profit agencies to paint, complete murals, garden, work with youth, etc.

The Office of Civic Engagement provides support to faculty, students, staff and administrators that allow them to develop, expand and sustain collaborative, mutually beneficial partnerships with community residents, organizations and institutions. From one-time volunteer experiences for students to service-learning projects embedded in the curriculum to long-term collaborative partnerships that tackle the community's toughest challenges, the Office of Civic Engagement helps campus and community maximize the benefits of their interdependence.
