The ALIVE CCP is committed to bringing campus and community together for the enrichment of both higher education and public life. We facilitate collaborative efforts that address local, regional, and global needs while enhancing the level of student learning and educational experience. We are dedicated to providing WKU students with opportunities that cultivate personal growth, ethical values, and public action for the common good. The ALIVE CCP supports engaged scholarship through service-learning and community-based research as part of the WKU curriculum. We also provide numerous opportunities for volunteerism and ongoing community service.
The ALIVE CCP's mission is to support community development locally and abroad through campus and community partnerships. The ALIVE CCP connects students, faculty, staff, and community members to resources and opportunities for meaningful service and public scholarship.
Our vision is that campus and community members will engage in meaningful service and work together to improve quality of life by acting as public problem-solvers and effective community-builders.
