The Community Service Center (CSC) for Oregon is an interdisciplinary organization that assists Oregon communities by providing planning and technical assistance to help solve local issues and improve the quality of life for Oregon residents. The role of the CSC is to link the skills, expertise, and innovation of higher education with the economic development and environmental needs of communities and regions in the State of Oregon, thereby providing service to Oregon and learning to the students involved. Through the service-learning programs provided by the CSC, RARE AmeriCorps members gain important service and professional experience by helping to solve community and regional development issues.
