CES for Beginners

Welcome! Since you’ve come to this page, you’re probably curious about Community Engaged Scholarship (CES). Maybe you are asking, "what is it?" but, briefly put, CES is the real collaboration between a university partner and a community partner where both are meaningfully involved in each step of a project from its inception to its conclusion and the project’s goals/outcomes meet the community’s needs as defined by them.

For questions and more information, please contact Dr. Jodie Lawston, Faculty Director of Community Engaged Scholarship,, 760-750-7006.
