Center for Community Engagement building in downtown York

About Us

Mission: The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) promotes the College's positive relationship with the local community and is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in York. 

Core Values: The York College Center for Community Engagement recognizes the tireless efforts of the citizens in our community on behalf of our community. It is this work that inspires our COMMUNITY P.R.I.D.E. represented in our core values.

Partner with the community by connecting the students, faculty, and academic resources of York College to the needs of the organizations, businesses, and initiatives in the York community.

Rally people to support the positive changes happening in movements of York, providing space, encouraging collaborations, and fostering vital relationships in our community.

Inform and engage our community through Community-Based Learning opportunities for our students and unbiased research from the Arthur J. Glatfelter Institute for Public Policy.

Develop community and research-minded leaders—both in the community and among our York College students—by creating more engaged citizens.

Empower people, particularly historically underrepresented populations, to work toward a more socially just community.
