Center for Community Engagement & Service

Welcome to the PLU Center for Community Engagement and Service (CCES). CCES serves as a resource for students, staff and faculty who want to learn and serve in the context of the Parkland and Tacoma community. The Center is also a point of contact for community members seeking university involvement with local organizations, programs and projects. We recognize the invaluable wisdom housed in our local community and seek mutually beneficial partnerships that deepen student learning while enhancing the common good.
