Applied and experiential learning, including civic engagement, is an important and required part of many Pacific undergraduate students’ studies. Under normal circumstances, experiential learning activities take place off-campus at organizational locations across the region. Due to COVID-19 public health requirements, there are new operational requirements for anyone pursuing experiential learning:
- When possible, students will undertake experiential learning that is campus-based or site-free, because limited-site and off-site experiences introduce additional risks such as mingling of populations.
- In cases where students must complete off-campus, site-based experiential learning activities, they are required to submit the “Field Experience Student Acknowledgement of Risk of COVID-19” form in advance.
- All partner sites must be approved for the duration of the pandemic via our Partner Agreements form.
There are many ways that civic engagement takes place on campus or in online environments. Students and partner organizations do not need to complete the forms above for experiential learning taking place on campus or in virtual environments. If you have questions regarding experiential learning or the site approval process, please contact the Director of Applied and Experiential Learning.
Get Involved | Upcoming MCCE Events
The McCall Center for Civic Engagement encourages Pacific students to take part in making our communities better through civic engagement. No matter your interests, skills, passions, or access to resources like time or transportation, we can help you find a way to get involved.
We organize annual programs and activities and offer regular opportunities to Get Involved Via Engagement (GIVE)— generally short-term experiences involving volunteer service, advocacy, or political activism organized by our student Civic Action Team Specialists.
Our upcoming events are featured below and regularly publicized around campus but the very best way to stay in the loop is via our "Civic Action Update" emails. We hope to see you soon!
