Engage partnerships encourage a spirit of service between the CSU family and the local community. Matthew 20:28 states, "Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Jesus came to serve the people. When we serve others, we give our lives away to them just as Jesus did for us. Community service is the link we use to reach our community and fulfill our university's vision of integrating faith in learning, leading and serving. Like Elijah, we are not only to serve our CSU community but those in need outside of our borders (Luke 4:24-27).
