Community Conversations on Leadership 

Community Conversations on Leadership is a series of panel discussions with industry and community leaders from multiple sectors. Conversations will focus on challenges facing these sectors and the leadership needed to address them. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to attend.

Each conversation will include a networking session to encourage dialogue among attendees and strengthen and grow professional relationships.  

Community Impact Scholars

Each year, a select cohort of Community Impact Scholars will delve deeply into civic engagement and social justice issues while developing their leadership skills through hands-on learning opportunities. These students will be able to apply the skills learned throughout all aspects of their college careers and future endeavors. The program is available through a partnership with the Dumke Center for Civic Engagement, Environmental Center, and Student Diversity and Inclusion Center
