OCTC Civic Engagement

OCTC Civic Engagement is committed to citizen participation in activities that promote the welfare of our community and allow people to participate in decision-making processes that impact our future. Through civic engagement and service learning activities, individuals can come to understand the community's relationship to the state, nation, and world while improving the lives and experiences of the community as a whole.

The OCTC Civic Engagement Committee has been formally working on this project since November 2007. We will be sponsoring various public events, student and community activities, and providing assistance for student service learning projects.
