There are several rollout phases planned for CEPI, including meetings with campus groups and general information to help guide you through using CEPI (i.e., User Guidelines and Definitions).
Please Note: The initial rollout of CEPI took place during Fall 2020. The data entered at this point reflects a pilot stage with signature outreach programs and is therefore incomplete.
How to Use CEPI
Campus users should start by requesting a "Campus Partner User" account. Once approved campus users can begin using CEPI to enter community engagement projects. We've created some instructional videos for new campus users in CEPI.
Detailed guidelines, campus user guidelines, a how-to quick guide, and key terms with definitions will be available soon.
