Celebrating 20 Years of CCASL Alumni

In honor of CCASL’s 20th Anniversary, we are launching our first ever CCASL alumni newsletter. All of you have made an incredible contribution to CCASL over the years and we want to keep you up to date with stories, photos and videos about all of our work here on campus and around the world.

Over the past 20 years, CCASL has grown from a one-staff department with a handful of students to a pillar of Gonzaga’s culture, with over 3,000 students contributing over 75,000 hours of service each year. Recently, the university was honored with the Carnegie Foundation’s Community Engagement Designation, a distinction shared by less than 7% of four year institutions. Gonzaga has also produced the most Peace Corps Volunteers for schools its size for three years in a row.
