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.

Exploring Citizenship: Sustaining Communities
During Spring Break 2016 students will explore issues affecting diverse neighborhoods in San Diego and Los Angeles. When we think about sustainable communities, we think about people being able to preserve their environment while meeting social and economic needs. A sustainable community resembles a connected system in which human, natural and economic elements are interdependent and draw strength from one another.
Students interested in participating in an Alternative Spring Break experience are encouraged to APPLY for this unique opportunity to explore the boundaries, limits and rewards of citizenship. The deadline to apply is February 8, 2016 at 9 am. This trip is of no cost to students. For more information, or if you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
