WashU Engage


Fostering civic and community engagement among our campus community both in St. Louis and beyond.


WashU Engage Alumni Program

WashU Engage 2017, in its second year, aligns with the university’s commitment to supporting habits of lifelong learning and leadership for alumni and advances the Gephardt Institute’s mission of cultivating informed and actively engaged citizens. More in depth than the classic model for community service projects, this initiative will provide an opportunity for alumni to connect with one another while learning about and reflecting on a community issue together. Over 350 alumni across the country will come together to support their local communities and strengthen the ties among WashU alumni and friends. Find an event near you below.

In spring 20washuengage16 , the Gephardt Institute and Washington University in St. Louis Al
umni Association
  partnered to bring alumni together in cities across the United States for WashU Engage. This series of community engagement initiatives serves local communities, while providing alumni the opportunity to come together and reflect on their role in the communities where they live and work.

In the program’s inaugural year, over 200 alumni participated in nine community projects in eight cities throughout the country.
