CCAP activates the Columbia College Principles for Student Success in support of the community. We welcome any creative who wants to get involved, from one-time volunteers to those looking to employ their passion.

The Center for Community Arts Partnerships (CCAP) builds programs that connect Columbia students to Chicago’s vibrant community arts sector, helping to support the next generation of engaged creatives. CCAP is looking for students from all walks of life who are curious about the role art plays in communities, and all the BIG things it can do— like enacting social change, transforming learning, or bringing people together in meaningful ways. If this is you, CCAP wants to put you to work in the community.
