Students at civic engagement fairThe Center for Civic Engagement will host a Community Engagement Fair on Tuesday, September 6, outside the St. Germain Campus Center by the portico. Representatives from many local nonprofit organizations will be on hand to encourage and entice students and staff to get involved in the greater Springfield community as a volunteer. A wide variety of volunteer opportunities will be available to explore.

“Civic engagement is about understanding and becoming a part of the community you live in,” explained Emma Seils, assistant director of civic engagement. “When a person volunteers in the community they learn to be an engaged citizen and not just an observers.”

Students and staff who are unable to attend the fair can visit the Center for Civic Engagement website to learn more about how they can become involved.
