Mission Statement 

The LSC-University Park Center for Civic Engagement aims to cultivate intellectual curiosity, facilitate community dialogue, and inspire ethical civic participation. Civic engagement invites the individual to invest themselves in the collective fate of their community. Our goal is to provide programs and opportunities that enable students to identify and embrace their civic obligations both to ennoble their own lives and to positively impact their local, national, and global community.


Lyceum Lecture Series

The CCE will host a series of lectures open to the entire community to highlight important civic, political, and ethical issues, facilitate civil and empathetic dialogue, and equip individuals to contribute solutions to collective problems. 


The CCE is proud to partner with "Start Taking Action Now for Diversity - University Park" to host an annual event to inform and engage students on important contemporary issues.
