Center for Community Engagement
University of Mississippi
  • Welcome to the Center for Community Engagement

    The Office of Community Engagement was founded in early 2020 after the University earned the Carnegie classification. This distinction made it necessary for UM’s burgeoning community engagement infrastructure to coalesce in a singular office. The office was converted into a limited scope center in 2021 to advance the institutionalization of community-engaged research, learning, and service and engaged scholarship. The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) is housed under the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, along with the Center for Inclusion and Cross-Cultural Engagement (CICCE).


    The Division of Diversity and Community Engagement supports the mission of UM by transforming people, institutions, and communities through partnership, access, and engagement that fosters belonging, enriches learning and development, enhances research, and creates equitable opportunities for all.
