Engage in education well beyond the classroom.

UC Engage is a program that aims to engage students in various learning activities beyond the classroom. The program offers service opportunities to students to help them develop critical thinking skills while also fostering a sense of empathy and compassion. By participating in these activities, we hope to spark a desire within our students to make a positive impact in their community and beyond.

We invite you to participate in our Season of Service!
