Student Programs Ignited for
 Community Engagement and Education 

In 2017, the Student Programs Ignited for Community Engagement & Education (SPICEE)  component was established to address the lack of presence of community engagement and education programs within SPACES. Additionally, this component served to meet the needs of under-resourced students that were not addressed in retention and access. SPICEE is currently in the process of cultivating signature programs and establishing relationships with SPACES CORE organizations.
