Every week, CSUSM’s Department of Service Learning and Civic Engagement (SLCE) will recommend an action you can take to create positive change. Thanks to a partnership with civic engagement platform Impactree, SLCE will report back on the campus’ collective impact by action and issue area. Although we’ve just started, your campus community has already completed and shared 945 actions for racial justice, gender equity, climate change, and more!
Calling all campus changemakers--doing good just got a whole lot easier!
Will you help us get to 1,000 actions by Friday, May 14? To start taking action together, complete this week’s recommended action, or signup at https://my.impactree.com/g/csusm-dslce to start making a difference.
Recommended Action: Fight for Equitable Maternal Care
Women of Color are 2-3x more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women. Every Mother Counts is dedicated to ensuring that all women have access to equitable maternal care. Contact your policy-makers to urge policy action that supports mothers today.
Make a difference in your community! Participate in the César Chávez Day of Service or Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service - these volunteer opportunities are open to students.
Check back here in August for Fall 2021 events.
At CSUSM, we are committed to developing student knowledge and skills to engage in a healthy democracy through opportunities for civic dialogue and direct engagement with local issues, both on and off-campus.
On March 1, 2016, President Karen S. Haynes signed the Campus Compact 30th Anniversary
Action Statement of Presidents and Chancellors.
Signing the statement signifies CSUSM's recommitment to the values of civic engagement and action in service to the public good.
