About Us

The Center for Community Engagement at Amherst College works to realize a holistic definition of liberal education, one that links service with learning to foster the personal growth and social change that result from cooperative relationships between students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community.

To this end, the Center currently serves as a central resource for information about area opportunities in service and social justice.

We also coordinate sustained partnerships between campus groups and community organizations, facilitate cooperation between various student groups, and assist in the development of effective student leadership with the goal of cultivating a respectful campus environment dedicated to personal and group empowerment.
