Mission

The Center for Service in Action (CSA) at Cal Poly connects students with meaningful community service opportunities that complement their educational experience, strengthen their understanding of diversity and social responsibility, and develop skills to become ethical and knowledgeable leaders who contribute to a global society. The CSA cultivates reciprocal service and learning partnerships between the university and community partner agencies, serving community-based organizations and governmental institutions seeking University support to address unmet community needs.

JEDI Statement

The principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusivity (JEDI) are core values within Cal Poly’s Center for Service in Action. We are committed to building and sustaining inclusive and equitable service-learning environments for all students, staff, faculty, and our local community. Through addressing underserved community needs, we will support the next generation of leaders in strengthening their understanding of diversity and social responsibility and developing skills to become ethical and knowledgeable leaders who contribute to a global society. Our goal is to not only advance equity and justice within San Luis Obispo, but to improve equity and justice on a global scale.

Justice: Dismantling barriers to resources and opportunities in society so that all individuals and communities can live a full and dignified life.

Equity: Allocating resources to ensure everyone has access to the same opportunities. Equity recognizes that advantages and barriers exist.

Diversity: All the differences between us based on whether we experience advantages or encounter barriers to opportunities.

Inclusion: Fostering a sense of belonging by centering, valuing, and amplifying the voices, perspectives and styles of those who experience more barriers based on their identities.
