How to get involved

Students          Faculty          Community


C3 connects the college and Cedar Rapids community to support students’ development as active and educated citizens and to promote positive, community-driven social change.

What we do

We create connections between students, classes or departments and community organizations with whom they could build a reciprocal working relationship. We let students know about resources available to them in the community, advertise events and volunteer opportunities and connect students/classes with organizations from which they could learn more about their chosen subject/career path while meeting a community need.


Our vision is that students will prioritize working within and understanding community in a lifelong pursuit of social justice.
