Service to the Community

Community Engagement takes various forms at College of DuPage and COD is not tied to any one model of engagement. Focused on supporting the College’s mission to be a center of excellence in teaching, learning and cultural experiences, outreach efforts range from large on-campus community events, educational and community based presentations to academic partnerships and volunteerism.
