ServeUH, Community and Civic Engagement

The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) is charged with creating civic engagement opportunities for entire UH campus community. Led by the ideals of transformational leadership, CSI fosters an environment that integrates learning, service, and leadership to empower students to become active, global citizens who lead with a lifelong commitment to service. To that end, CSI assists students in developing the skills necessary to become civically responsible citizens and to take action on social issues that impact their community.

Getting involved in civic engagement with CSI is simple, as we provide a range of programs that promote civic engagement at UH.
