Our Mission: Leadership for Community Capacity Building

The Community Engagement Center (CEC) was formed in 1997 by faculty, staff, students, and community members who wanted to better mobilize resources and assets in the community and the University of New Mexico to address community identified needs through research, policy initiatives, teaching, and service. The mission of CEC is to nurture the leadership of the next generation of civically minded youth of color from local neighborhoods for community capacity building. The primary initiative to actualize this mission is the UNM Service Corps.
