HOLLINS Cultural & Community Engagement

History and Mission

Cultural & Community Engagement (CCE) assists in fostering an environment that values and actively supports an inclusive community.  Through training, leadership development, open dialogues, service projects, programming and workshops, the CCE seeks to promote and encourage acceptance and celebration of difference.

The program offers a wide range of services which include: providing cultural leadership opportunities, assisting with retention and graduation of students from underrepresented groups at Hollins; organizing workshops to become allies to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students; advocating for diverse students, faculty, and staff; collaborating and supporting student organizations’ programming efforts, as well as campus-wide initiatives; and serving as a community liaison. CCE also offers an international service learning project in Jamaica during Spring Break.
