The establishment of the Center for Civic Engagement is the final step of Binghamton University's strategic plan, released in 2005, to emphasize the importance of community engagement and outreach for students, faculty, staff, and community members. Working closely with area colleges (Broome Community College & Davis College), the Center for Civic Engagement is committed to community engagement through various opportunities such as volunteerism, internships, service-learning, and community-based research. The Center of Civic Engagement has received numerous grants, awards, and recognitions, which have allowed us the ability to fulfill our efforts.
