Center for Engagement, Service, and the Public Good

Our Mission

The Center for Engagement, Service, and the Public good was launched in 2014 to work on behalf of the students of Cal State L.A. and the residents of Los Angeles to generate a positive change across Southern California.​


Our Goal

The goal, as envisioned by President William A. Covino, is to transform the University into a hub of civic engagement and public service for our communities, our city, and our region.  We are dedicated to service learning and neighborhood transformation and seek to be a catalytic force in the lives of students, faculty and the people who live in the communities we serve.​​​

University students realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens by volunteering in a wide range of agencies.



Service Learning is a campus-wide culture of community engagement that contributes to student success and allows students to serve the changing needs of a global society.
