The Guam Community College Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) supports the enhancement of student educational experiences through the integration of academic study with active service, while encouraging civic involvement, community awareness, and responsible leadership. This educational approach is known as Service-Learning – a way of teaching and learning that engages all learners in hands-on academic projects in the community to meet learning objectives and strengthen communities. Students who are civically engaged in their learning are better able to connect classroom learning with real life situations through participation in community service projects. A key characteristic of Service-Learning curriculum is its support of general education requirements, providing students with opportunities to develop and practice personal skills such as critical thinking, researching, decision-making, planning, and organizing.
The CCE assists faculty and academic departments in developing, administering, improving, and evaluating Service-Learning partnerships.
In addition, GCC provides tutoring services for students in an effort to help them meet their educational objectives. These services are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The focus of these services centers primarily on English and Math skills. The college also collaborates with AmeriCorps Tutors in providing tutoring services to students.
Please call if you are interested in implementing Service-Learning with your courses or you need ideas and resources to help students become more civically engaged.
