How the CIC Works
|The CIC functions as a connector
organization that links students, faculty/staff, and community partners. Our center does
volunteers. Instead, the CIC provides resources for volunteers to find
opportunities that best fit their individual needs.
One powerful matchmaking tool we offer is the Service Opportunity Directory. This comprehensive listing contains information on community partners including their mission, volunteer opportunities, and contact information. Students, faculty and staff can access this database in order to find a fit for their needs; individuals may also visit our office to find a good match.
aim of the CIC is to provide opportunities for partners to meet and collaborate
independently with faculty. Such an event is the Community Partner Breakfast.
The ultimate goal for partners is to find sustainable, mission-aligned partnerships
The CIC: Engaging Students, Faculty, and You
The CIC provides methods for partners to engage students that include tabling events, classroom visits, and online calendars. Please work with the CIC staff to tap into our powerful base.
Engaging Faculty and Staff
A notable way for faculty to get involved is to designate their course as CBL. Students in these classes will apply what they are learning in the classroom to solve real community needs. Please work with the CIC staff to determine the best faculty to meet your needs
Engaging Community Partners
The CIC partners with non-profits and government agencies to provide service opportunities for faculty, staff and students. These organizations receive a volunteer pool from WSU as large as it is diverse, thus providing them with a wide range of skills. Partners become co-educators by helping students learn civic values and opportunities to enhance their education.
Your Partnership is Important to Us!
We could not accomplish so much without your
help! It is our goal to ensure that your organization is kept abreast of all
opportunities and changes at our center and in the community.
We cannot guarantee volunteers,
will strive to advertise to and educate as many individuals at Weber State
If at any time you have questions about your partnership or should you have a special need for volunteers, please do not hesitate to contact our center.
