Empowering Minds, Transforming Communities
Building Partnerships Across Indiana
For 30 years, CEA has been supporting the development of civic-minded Hoosier college graduates. We collaborate across sectors and are the only organization in Indiana that serves all higher education types; four-year, two-year, independent, and public. Through our programs, funding, and learning communities, we create unique opportunities for partnerships among all 37 institutions in the state.
Investing in Indiana
Grant Funding and Technical Support
CEA provides partners with grant funds for projects, research, and collaboration in community engagement. In addition to grant dollars, we offer technical support throughout the application process and consultation during the activity period to help the funded project succeed.
Advancing Civic Engagement
We are committed to growing the field of community engagement in the state of Indiana. Our resources help institutions incorporate service-learning into the entire campus experience, develop lasting community connections, leverage statewide strengths, and address local concerns. This collaboration fortifies Hoosier communities and produces college graduates ready to create positive social change.
Promoting Student Development
By supporting the development of campus faculty and staff in their use of high-impact educational practices, we help improve student academic outcomes, cultivate their civic engagement skills, and grow their commitment to pursuing the public good.
