Civic Engagement Day
April 9, 2014
Civic Engagement Day is the culmination of year-long exploration of the civic engagement theme, an opportunity for members of the campus community to share and experience the broad learning that is taking place at the university. The entire campus community is encouraged to participate in events throughout the day.
The civic engagement committee invites you to join in the culmination of the university's year-long series of scholarship and exploration of the civic engagement theme. Civic Engagement day is scheduled for Wednesday, April 9. The committee is currently accepting proposals for educational programming related to this year's theme of Race and Ethnicity in America: Celebration, Struggle, Opportunity. Please consider sharing your experience and expertise with us at our annual Civic Engagement Day. We also invite you to encourage your students to become an active part of the day's events by presenting their knowledge and experience along with their attendance at sessions.
To submit your program for Civic Engagement Day, please complete the online application. The submission deadline is Feb. 28. For more information, please contact a member of this year's Civic Engagement Committee: Andi Baumgartner, Mark Bourassa, Jonathan Fowler, Lamar Nisly, Walt Paquin, Jessica Parker, Amanda Sensenig or Jackie Wells.
