Center for Civic Engagement

Civic Engagement Week

April 16–22, 2017

Being a Coug is a privilege; being civically engaged is a responsibility; being the change is a commitment. At the CCE, we love being civically engaged Cougs, and during Civic Engagement Week, we want to show you why! Civic Engagement Week is our time to recognize the WSU community’s commitment to making a difference and to provide even more opportunities for to you to stay informed and get involved. 

Take part in a service project, attend a class presentation, take part in Earth Day events, and attend the LEAD event featuring the President's Award for Leadership. Most importantly, thank a civically engaged Coug for all the good things he or she has done to make the world a better place.

  • April 18, 2017 | LEAD Award Ceremony

    The Leadership and Engagement Awards of Distinction (LEAD) event is a celebration of WSU student leaders and those who have mentored and supported the efforts of these students as they work towards leadership and social change. This year's event will begin at 5 pm in the CUB Senior Ballroom.
