The Community Connection Center supports the mission of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock as a community engaged research university. To do so, we will serve as the facilitative outreach office for campus and community partnerships, through the development of high impact programs that increase student engagement, learning and retention, enhance collaborative faculty and student research, and improve community outcomes.
The Center will bring together the areas of:
- Community Engaged Scholarship
- UALR Children International
- Co-operative Education
The CCC will create and promote community-based learning experiences that offer reciprocal and substantial benefits for our community partners as well as co-curricular service opportunities that inspire students to become active citizens, change agents and leaders in our community.
UALR is the only Arkansas university recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching for the elective classification as a Community Engaged Institution.
