Public Service and Civic Engagement

The Public Service and Civic Engagement Living Learning Community aims to foster a pipeline of civic-minded student leaders who are passionate about the intersection of community service, public service, social justice, and community empowerment. Through participating in this community, students will be exposed to ongoing service initiatives impacting the UCLA and greater Los Angeles community along with opportunities to get involved with them. They will develop a cohesive understanding of public service career pathways in education, government, and non-profit work; an awareness for relevant scholarships, fellowships, grants, and internship opportunities; and ability to synthesize social justice with public service. Students will have the opportunity to develop and execute their own campaigns, participate in service trips and ongoing service projects, visit key sites like City Hall, and meet fellow Bruins who are also passionate about similar issues.

All students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in this community as we examine the ways in which community service, public policy, civic engagement, social justice, and community mobilization impact local, state, national, and global issues.
