The Community Engagement Office is an integrated unit established to support civic commitment activities at CEU. Four offices are brought together to strengthen the work in this area in line with CEU’s strategic plan. Community Engagement at CEU covers four main functions:
1. Civic engagement and connecting CEU with the Austrian and Hungarian community
The office coordinates, assists in, and initiates broader civic engagement projects intended to benefit the larger Austrian and Hungarian community. Such projects will involve members of all CEU internal constituencies (students, faculty, and staff).
2. Student leadership and engagement
The office undertakes and supports outreach and service projects specifically for students, in addition to working on student events and with the Student Union.
3. Dedicated human rights education and related activities
The Office focuses on youth involvement, education and active student participation. It promotes social engagement through awareness raising and capacity building.
4. Arts and Culture
The aim is to stir culture-related debate within the university, and to provide the CEU community with an inspiring artistic program that would bring together students from all disciplines, academic staff, Vienna and Budapest citizens.
