A brief description of the institution’s employee community service initiatives:

"SF State's Institute for Civic and Community Engagement (ICCE) provides opportunities for SF State faculty and students to become aware of and address issues of social justice through service-learning and civic engagement. Through innovative courses, experiential learning, political engagement, participatory action research, and direct services, we partner the resources and expertise of the urban university with the knowledge and assets of diverse communities. We foster scholarship that benefits the public good: those people who fully participate in the civic life and political processes of their communities, and who take action to effectively advocate for social, economic, and educational inclusion."

Credit by Evaluation for Experiential Learning (CEEL):
CEEL is designed to meet the needs of students whose university-level prior learning experiences can be evaluated for credit towards certain general education, major, or elective requirements of the University. Credit is offered only after a comprehensive and searching evaluation by a faculty member in the area for which credit is sought and approved by a team of assigned faculty members. Two types of credit can be earned through CEEL.
