Center for Service Learning, Internships & Civic Engagement

Our Mission

The CSUDH Center for Service Learning, Internships & Civic Engagement (SLICE) is committed to facilitating and fostering quality experiential learning opportunities for students. We support the development of symbiotic relationships between the CSUDH campus, local communities in the Greater Los Angeles/South Bay areas, and our global neighbors in the world community. SLICE advocates campus contributions of knowledge and skill which promote the quality of life in these communities. We support high-impact practices for student success including experiential learning and community-based research. Our work upholds the University Mission in its commitment to "excellence and pluralism in higher education and to further the goals of a democratic society through wide participation and civic responsibility in community, social, and economic affairs."
