Achievement of Community Engagement and Service (ACES)
The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning (CESL) provides you with the opportunity to be recognized for engaging in volunteer activities in your community.

Recognition is earned at four levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. The level of recognition awarded is based on the number of volunteer hours you complete and document. Recognition for service learning is noted on your transcript, and you will receive a digital badge commensurate with the level of recognition you have earned.
