What is the Civic Engagement and Service Office?


The Civic Engagement and Service (CES) office at Santa Fe College makes local and global citizenship integral to professional development by providing community service, leadership, advocacy, and educational opportunities to students, faculty and staff. Each semester, CES sponsors volunteer and job expos, service-learning projects, alternative breaks, and campus activities to make civic engagement and service activities accessible to students. Stop by the CES office today to learn about volunteer opportunities for you or your group!

Upcoming Events







Times Talks

Times Talks are open conversations about important and controversial issues in the news, and are part of Santa Fe's efforts to promote greater civic engagement on campus. They are an opportunity for students, faculty members, and other members of the college community to sit as equals and exchange views on important issues in a casual, informal, and civil environment. Times Talks are moderated each time by a different volunteer faculty or student facilitator. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to participate in the sort of vigorous and engaging discussion of important issues that is needed in a democracy. We will be holding more dates in the Fall.





Santa Fe College held a special Community Dialogue on Wed., July 20 to discuss the tragic events that have recently impacted communities across the United States. Students, faculty and staff were present and all participated in the discussion.
