The University of La Verne is a private not-for-profit university located in La Verne, California, United States, about 35 miles east of Los Angeles.
The Office of Civic and Community Engagement at University of La Verne, founded in August 2013, seeks to embody reciprocity through transformative community-based academic and co-curricular experiences grounded in an Asset Based Community Development model. Our university-community relationships are grounded in the four core values of the University of La Verne: Ethical Reasoning, Civic and Community Engagement, Diversity and Inclusivity, and Lifelong Learning. The curricular and co-curricular components of the Office of Civic and Community Engagement prepare students to be socially-engaged and ethical leaders, to partner with communities as co-educators, to promote community engaged scholarship amongst faculty, and to support co-curricular engagement efforts. The Office integrates academic and co-curricular community engagement activities across the university in a way that enriches the academic experiences of students, assists in retention, and provides leadership opportunities grounded in the University’s four core values. As part of this effort, the University of La Verne seeks to be a preferential partner with our local communities.
