Faculty, staff and students interested in the civic participation project are invited to view presentations by the 2018-2019 mini-grant recipients. Presentations will take place Monday April 15, 2019 from 11 A.M. - 12:30 P.M. inside of CEC 209. Lunch will be provided.
Civic participation mini-grants provide support for projects that “make a difference in the civic life of our communities…promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and nonpolitical processes.” (Thomas Ehrlich, in Civic Responsibility and Higher Education).
This year’s projects represent a wide range of projects from teaching high school students how to participate in useful dialogue, connecting women in public policy efforts throughout the metro, and educating students about the civil rights movement through the Black History tour.
