The Civic Engagement Showcase returns in April after a three-year absence and organizers are seeking proposals from faculty, staff and community partners who want to highlight their initiatives or programs.

The showcase is April 6 from 4-7:30 p.m. in the DeVos Center, Hager-Lubbers exhibition hall. The event will highlight civic and community partnerships, programs and initiatives. 

Travus Burton, director for Civic Learning and Community Engagement, said proposal submissions are being accepted on a rolling basis online through March 3. 

"This showcase will be a celebration of engagement and a lot of sharing of ideas," Burton said. "We look forward to having a platform for these campus-community partnerships to shine."

Questions about a submission or the event can be directed to Burton at [email protected].
