The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) provides students with opportunities to enact Occidental’s values through community-based service and learning collaborations with organizations in Los Angeles and beyond. We work with all members of the Occidental community in challenging students to connect their on campus learning experiences with meaningful and reciprocal off campus experiences on issues of social concern. In doing so, the OCE seeks to support students’ development as responsible members of communities and endeavors to achieve a more just, livable, and democratic society, a strong commitment to diversity, and a commitment to enacting a life devoted to public good and social justice.
