Community Engagement Showcase

Each year CCESL celebrates the work of students, faculty and staff at UHD by holding a showcase to present their work to their colleagues. The showcase is a great way for students to get practice presenting their work both inside the classroom and in the community.

Community Partners Fair

Community partners from across the Houston Metro area converge on UHD each year to share their work and opportunities for involvement with the UHD community. Many of the partners in attendance garner student volunteers, staff grant projects, faculty service learning projects, and work study students for their organizations.
