The Student Life Program serves CPCC's hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community with major events and activities. As the center of student activities and organizations, our offices have a continuous flow of student traffic dealing with issues related to Student Life programs, activities, and services, requests for support for student organizations, and requests for information about other campus resources. The program maintains an open-door policy, and staff members are available to support students in any way that is reasonable, practical, and in keeping with College policy.
Student Life has established a strong precedent of offering co-curricular programming, and is a good resource to meet many faculty/staff needs as well. Staff members are often invited by faculty into classrooms to discuss the program and Student Life activities. Staff members also provide support for administration, faculty, and staff committees, projects, and initiatives. Student Life typically serves 25 or more College staff members each week.
The programs sponsors and supports the CPCC Folk Frolic, Literary Festival, Skyline Run, and other events which target the community as a primary audience. The major community events draw audiences that number in the thousands.
Service-Learning involves students in organized community service that addresses local needs, while developing their academic skills, sense of civic responsibility, and commitment to the community. The Service-Learning Center aims to promote, coordinate and conduct service in and around the Charlotte region, which will enhance learning, promote civic responsibility, and engage CPCC in the community.
