The American Studies Department is committed to engaging with the community both inside and outside of CSUF. Faculty members and students work with groups at local, national, and global levels to promote the larger goals and values of the university and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Sometimes this involves voluntering in service-learning projects or providing materials to local schools to enhance the curriculum. At other times, this invovles giving invited talks or helping to plan academic or public events. We will be updating this space with examples of the ways that the department and its faculty and students engage with the community.
