The Institute for Civic Engagement

The Institute for Civic Engagement strives to increase the number of undergraduate students engaged in meaningful civic actions by restructuring and influencing academic programs, extracurricular activities, and the institutional culture. The Institute also coordinates the College’s “Building Community Leaders” and “Bringing Theory to Practice” initiatives as well as the SUNY Cortland AmeriCorps program. During 2012-13, a total of 1,272 SUNY Cortland students donated 24,086 hours of service to the community. When combined with the service provided by the College’s AmeriCorps volunteers, the value of service to the region coordinated by the Institute last year topped $1.6 million.
