Welcome to the Office of Community Engagement!

Director's Message

Hello to all,

I have three quick "calls to action" to share with you this week....

  • If you or your family/friends haven't completed the Census, please do so at before the deadline of September 30th. This is your last opportunity to respond - please take five minutes to complete this important survey!  
  • If you or your family/friends haven't registered to vote, please do so at before the deadline of October 19th
  • Even when we can't meet in person, we would still love to connect with you! Please contact us at

Let's turn the COVID crisis into an opportunity for you to get engaged!

Also, please join the OCE team in honoring Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for being a trailblazer in the fight for equal rights.  May her memory be a blessing.

OCE Annual Report 2019-2020

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.
