 Welcome Current and Prospective CCE students!

As a part of the Citizenship and Civic Engagement major, we hope to provide our students with individualized attention and the resources to succeed. This section of the website provides you with a wealth of information and resources you may need through any stage of the major. Included is a list of community placement partners, internship search engines, scholarship opportunities, areas of interest, and career planning.

Community Placement Partnerships

Community placements are an essential part of the CCE experience. Starting sophomore year, during MAX 301, students are able to gain non-profit internship experience while exercising civic engagement within the Syracuse Community. A student’s relationship with their community placement may last the semester or their entire college career and could lead into a MAX 401 Action Plan. It is the first step in a three year process. Below is a list of interest areas and community placement partners that fall within each category:
