Give to CCBL
A top priority of the University of North Florida is providing
students with rich, real-world opportunities that enhance their learning,
personal development, and community involvement while contributing to the greater
well-being of others.
At UNF, community-based transformational learning provides students the opportunity to directly participate in dynamic activities and experiences where
they can learn, while also serving the community.
You can make Community Engagement opportunities
accessible for all UNF students!
