Hood College students, faculty and staff exemplify a spirit of community service and civic engagement. As the College community embarks on the fall 2015 semester and also welcomes the start of a new era as President Chapdelaine begins her presidency, we want to work together to show the dedication of Hood’s students, faculty, staff and prospective students to the community in which we reside.
Every member of the Hood community is invited to take part in the Civic Engagement Awareness Week from Oct. 12-16 and the complementary lectures and events taking place Oct. 19-23. With the support of the administration, faculty, staff, students and community partners, this week has the potential to change the lives of many and allow Hood College’s most attractive quality of civic engagement to shine even more brightly.
We are aspiring to partner with five to seven community organizations that can provide a wide range of service opportunities, including tasks that fit a specific time slot or hour, daylong projects and ventures that could extend beyond this Civic Engagement Awareness Week.
The number of hours to date can be seen below and will be updated daily for the duration of this event.
