Welcome to the Office of Community Engagement!
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and our office, along with Title IX & Gender Equality Office, is sponsoring a special effort to give some cuddly and soft stuffed bears (or other stuffed animals) to children who are affected by domestic violence.
“Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work or School Day” is a national campaign. All of the Teddy Bears donated from now until 4PM next Wednesday, October 14 will be donated to Option House, Inc. and Trinity Children’s Foundation.
Please donate a new or unused teddy bear (or other stuffed animal).

On July 26, 2015 a group of CSUSB students left to New Orleans for their Alternative Summer Break. CSUSB Alternative Summer Break is a low-cost service trip that takes CSUSB students to communities outside of Inland Empire, where they take part in volunteering and hands-on learning. Above is a group photo of our CSUSB students and staff at Saint Anne Parish neighboor volunteering with Youth Rebuilding New Orleans non-profit organization.
