Community Partner Resources

Community Partners and CPS

Community partnerships are at the core of CPS programs. We believe that partnerships should be mutually beneficial. Community partners play a significant role in the education of our students by providing opportunities to learn and guiding students through the exploration of social justice, course concepts, and personal and professional development.

CPS works with over 30 agencies and organizations to meet community needs. Our partners include agencies and organizations working with youth, homelessness, hunger, poverty, Latino migrant farm workers, technology, literacy, elderly, environmental justice, food security, community development, etc.

Becoming a Community Partner

CPS is continuously looking for new partnerships that will be beneficial to all involved. Community Partners are active with students and/or faculty for service-learning course.
