The Civic Engagement and Service Education Partnerships (CESEP) Courses supports service learning and the civic mission of Rutgers University by linking faculty and students to local, state, and national community organizations. By fostering campus-community partnerships, it accomplishes the following:

  • Provides an academic component to students’ service experiences.

  • Builds service and research collaborations with community organizations, government agencies, corporations and alumni associations.

  • Creates a support infrastructure to connect university-based service efforts, document case studies, collect data and implement assessment systems that will foster public scholarship on the part of faculty and students.

  • Connects on-campus learning with genuine community needs, locally and globally.

CESEP courses have a service component embedded within a three-credit undergraduate course or have an additional credit option where students attend a recitation where they reflect on the service and how it connects to their academic study.
