The Community Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE) concentration is an interdisciplinary concentration within Stockton’s existing Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (LIBA) degree.  It incorporates a core set of General Studies classes with disciplinary courses across the university that operationalize learning in community-engaged ways. Through courses, internships and service learning experiences, students can take advantage of experiential learning opportunities in Atlantic City and greater South Jersey, translate academic learning into real-world experiences, and develop the knowledge, skills and values central to community leadership and engagement. 

Students interested in leading and shaping governmental, nonprofit, environmental, cultural arts or humantieis-based institutions are invited to explore the concentration in Community Leadership and Civic Engagement.

Engagement is a fundamental value at Stockton and is one of four themes of the University Strategic Plan. Students, faculty, staff and community partners can learn more about opportunities to serve the community and to partner with other organizations. Stockton encourages students to excel academically and to be engaged in student life, the community and the world. Stockton is an active participant in Campus Compact and earned the Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation.
