The CCCE (Center for Community and Civic Engagement) at Carleton College connects college students to the Northfield and broader Rice County community through meaningful volunteer experiences. The CCCE hosts 25+ ongoing programs with regular, committed volunteers, one-time events to meet periodic community needs, and educational programming to inform the way we understand community engagement and learning. We reach out beyond the borders of our campus not only to enrich the lives of Carleton students, but also to foster strong, cooperative relationships in our hometown. Learn more on the CCCE website.
