The Civic and Community Engagement Office is committed to providing meaningful community-based curricular and co-curricular experiences for SUNY Buffalo State students. Through your participation in one or more experiences, the Civic and Community Engagement Office hopes to inspire a life of active citizenship and social responsibility, while giving you the tools to learn how to become active and involved in any community you call home.
Students were interviewed for a YouTube live video about their civic and community engagement experiences:
