COVID-19/Coronavirus Information

Welcome to the Office of Community Engagement!

Director's Message

Hello to all,

I am very aware that all of us are going through so much right now....the pandemic, wildfires, unemployment, and some very painful national self-awareness.  We have lost some champions this year, witnessed a growing chasm of political divides, and mourn the necessary restrictions that prevent us from gathering with our families and friends.  It is exhausting, sad and overwhelming.

Many of us want to do something to help, and a fun way to get involved is to join us for our Coyote Cares Day event from October 19-24, 2020!  We will be raising funds for Feeding America by encouraging everyone to complete at least a 5K during the week, and then recording our steps in the Charity Miles app.  Corporate sponsors will donate funds for each mile that CSUSB completes, so please join us and help us raise money while getting healthy!  Complete details can be found on the Coyote Cares Day tab of our website.

Let's get moving!

CSUSB’s Office of Community Engagement (OCE) is very pleased to present our Community Engagement Annual Report! Please join us in recognizing the important work of hundreds of CSUSB students, faculty, staff and community partners during the 2019-20 academic year. 

2020 also marks a special year for OCE, as it is the 20 year anniversary of the office. The past two decades have left a profound impact in our students and our local communities. From the early days of San Bernardino neighborhood makeovers to the funding of over $1 million in faculty grants to the launch of Coyote Cares Day and now to a virtual engagement program, the touchstones of our programs are to respect and learn from community wisdom and to ensure the community benefits from our efforts.

We are proud to present this year's annual report as a celebration of CSUSB’s commitment to student success and vibrant communities.
