CCE Impact Grants 2021-2022

The Center for Community Engagement announces available funding for full-or part-time faculty members who wish to integrate service-learning, community-engaged learning, or community-based research in alignment with CPP's Strategic Values and support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Academic Impact Initiative.

To promote the growth of community-engaged learning and diversity/global learning as high-impact pedagogy, the Center for Community Engagement supports community and faculty collaboration(s) through CCE Impact Grants previously known as mini-grants. CCE Impact Grants ($1,000) will be awarded to faculty and community teams working to address critical social issues in Pomona, or the Greater Los Angeles area. Projects must be curricular, related to course academic learning objectives, reflective of university values, and address a community-identified need. 

The deadline to submit the CCE Impact Grant application for the CEL/SL courses for the Spring 2022 is Tuesday, November 2, 2021.

For more information, please contact the Center for Community Engagement at (909) 869-4269 or via email at cce@cpp.edu.

All CPP faculty are invited to participate. Projects addressing the United Nations, 2030 Sustainable Development Goals will be given priority.

Projects MUST have a curricular component (i.e., service-learning course, community-engaged learning). The CCE Impact Grant is designed to increase the number and quality of high-impact (PolyX) teaching practices on campus and respond to critical needs in Pomona and the Greater Los Angeles area through meaningful engagement.

  • With the support of the CCE staff, faculty will be asked to assess both student learning and community impact. This information needs to be provided to the Center for Community Engagement for assessment purposes by the end of the semester.
  • Faculty will be asked to present their projects at an appropriate venue as arranged by the Center for Community Engagement (i.e. Academic Innovation PolyX Showcase or CCE Annual Event).
  • The Center for Community Engagement encourages Impact Grant recipients to take advantage of opportunities for publication and presentations about these innovative projects.
