Since its inception in 2008, the Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service (CCECS) has aimed to develop a culture of service and civic leadership within the AUB community and provide opportunities for university students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds to study and respond to social and civic needs. CCECS’s operations are defined by the following cross-cutting tenets, (1) Outreach and Volunteerism, (2) Capacity Building, (3) Community Development Projects, (4) Supporting Service-Learning, (5) Advocacy Campaigns, (6) Civic Engagement Camps, and (7) Syria Relief Project. These components are rendered operational through the dynamic interaction among the University, socially responsible donors, and receptive local partners and carry an overarching aim to “engage in activities that enhance academic learning, civic responsibility and the skills of citizenship, while also enhancing community capacity through service” (Furco and Holland; 2004).
