MCCE's Civic Action Update for Nov. 21, 2023
McCall Center for Civic Engagement
The McCall Center for Civic Engagement oversees Pacific University's Civic Engagement core requirement and works with students, employees, campus groups (such as athletic teams and clubs), and community partners on co-curricular civic engagement activities - e.g. service, advocacy, fundraising, and more. The McCall Center is nonpartisan and seeks to uphold the university mission to work toward a diverse and sustainable community in which students "think, care, create, and pursue justice in our world."
