The OCSC is focused on strengthening the connection between Orange County’s excellent academic institutions with the communities and regions they serve. We hope to expose students, faculty, and staff to the valuable resources and opportunities that exist in the community. And conversely, the scholarship and other resources offered by academia add value to businesses, nonprofits, local governments, as well as the community. By connecting the campus academic communities to their surrounding constituents, the OCSC can facilitate cooperative learning and collaborative planning for the benefit of all.
