CCE's Domestic Programs

The Center for Civic Engagement, in cooperation with affiliated centers and institutes, collaborates on a wide range of programs that engage students intellectually, challenging them to examine the idea of global citizenship in the 21st century.
The Center sponsors lectures, conferences, and workshops, facilitates local partnerships, internships, volunteer and community-based learning opportunities, as well as innovative cross-cultural and artistic initiatives.

Local Partnerships

Bard works closely with local partners to provide students with opportunities for work, internships, and civic engagement in the Hudson Valley. Projects address real issues facing our communities, including poverty, sustainability, education, and immigration.

Science & Sustainability

Bard addresses environmental challenges and provides education reform in the sciences. The College offers rigorous, interdisciplinary science training to equip students with the knowledge required of tomorrow's leaders.

Arts & Engagement

At the nexus of Arts & Engagement is the idea of socially-engaged performance. It looks at what is called the ‘social turn’ in contemporary art by examining issues and practices of this activist and sometimes participatory art form. It can include a wide range of projects such as political performance, applied theatre, workshops, and performance installations.

Engaged Liberal Arts and Sciences

With the Engaged Liberal Arts and Sciences model, a significant portion of learning takes place outside of the classroom: students learn through engagement with different geographies, organizations, and programs in the surrounding communities or in the national and international venues in which CCE is involved.
