Community Engagement Consulting

CEC Team 2019


Mission ​

Community Engagement Consulting (CEC) guides students in developing greater civic consciousness through collaboration with business and civic leaders, to create innovative strategies that lead to lasting impacts on local organizations.

Guiding Principles

  • Radical Candor: the intersection of challenging directly and caring personally.
  • Social Responsibility: a personal responsibility for the well-being of CEC and the community in which it exists.
  • Reciprocal Relationship Building: looking to improve one’s own skills and experiences while improving the client’s organization.
  • Empathy-Driven Innovation: innovating, not for the sake of innovation, but to improve the lives of clients and our shared community.


Community Engagement Consulting was founded in 2017 by a group of GW students who had both a passion for service and a desire to utilize their core business skills. In the fall of 2017, CEC was launched with three consultants serving one partner site. Today, CEC serves four DC-area clients with a team of ten, including a professional advisor.

CEC offers pro-bono services in accounting & finance, board development & fundraising, change management & transformations, operations management, and social enterprise.
