Support Resources

Faculty interested in receiving support from the CSLCE may fill out the quick assistance request form below. Initial meetings with CSLCE academic staff can also be coordinated through this form. In order to ensure adequate time for planning quality community engagement experiences, faculty requests for assistance need to be submitted by the following deadlines*.
