"The purpose of the university
is to make students safe
for ideas - not ideas
safe for students"
Civic and Community Engagement develops initiatives that foster an environment of inquiry, civil debate, democratic participation, and access to resources such as higher education.
These projects are initiated by UCSB students and include voter registration, GOTV, the Civic Engagement Scholars Program (CESP), and workshops for first-generation, low-income high school students to pursue post-secondary education.
