The Community Engagement Center at UC Merced offers a variety of pathways for our campus and our community to partner together. If your agency or organization requires students to go through the Community Engagement Center in order to partner with you we will do our best to be sure they have completed the appropriate trainings, forms & waivers for the safety of all.
