The Gephardt Institute’s annual Civic Engagement Fair brings together student organizations and efforts for social change in one place, at one time.
On Sept. 13 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the South 40 Clocktower Patio, students are welcome to peruse a wide range of student-led social action groups and volunteer opportunities. Featuring over 50 student groups, the Civic Engagement Fair is a platform for efforts concerning community service, advocacy, political issues, social justice, and identity, to name a few. The fair is the perfect opportunity for anyone curious to explore their interests in a casual, market style setting accompanied by sweet treats and live music.
“[The fair] is a great, low-stakes starting point for students who want to explore their interests, and it’s a good place to find outlets for civic engagement and opportunities to connect with peers who share similar interests,” Student Engagement Specialist Sophie Devincenti said about the upcoming event.
