The Community-Engaged Campus:
Connecting with CSULB

“Community engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, state, regional, national and global) for the mutual beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.” (Carnegie Foundation)
