Club's Civic Engagement Project Requirement (CEPR)

The Civic Engagement Project supports California Lutheran University’s commitment to social justice and its mission of educating leaders committed to service and justice. The project is designed to engage CLU students to contribute to the common good and the population or cause their club(s) serves. By completing the Civic Engagement Project, CLU clubs will be eligible to receive $100 in club funding for the Fall involvement fair the following academic year and be recognized for their service and leadership at the Leadership Awards. Below you will find the policy for the Civic Engagement Project.
