Community Engagement Experience


The Community Engagement Experience (CEE) centers on the concept 'Think Globally; Act Locally.' VIH awardees are charged with forming a team and using their new-found skills, knowledge and passions to impact their local communities in a positive, innovative way. The CEE is to be completed and the CEE Report is to be sent to the Campus Coordinator and Director within 10 days of completing your CEE, at the very latest, by January 30th. The CEE Report must be completed individually.

“I was familiar with leading through school, clubs, and athletics but this CEE project opened my eyes to a whole other realm of leadership. I was forced to break out of my shell and learn how to converse with business owners, successful adults, and coordinate many people's schedules in a very high stress environment. Working with adults definitely helped define myself as a leader and sculpted me into a more refined person. It forces a sense of professionalism..." ~Angele Hagy, Waynesburg University
