About Us - Center for Community Engagement

Suffolk's Center for Community Engagement (previously S.O.U.L.S.) was founded in 1997 to engage the Suffolk University community in meaningful service work.

Through transformational experiential learning opportunities and mutually beneficial partnerships, the Center for Community Engagement aims to cultivate and inspire the Suffolk community with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be active and globally responsible citizens prepared to address social issues locally and beyond.

We develop programs that:

  • integrate practical experience in the community with classroom learning
  • help students gain a deeper, hands-on understanding of social justice issues
  • help students establish an ethic of service, achieve personal growth, and develop their leadership skills
  • express and promote the value and acceptance of diversity in our communities
  • are based in mutually beneficial partnerships and reciprocity
