Two events showcasing the work of nearly 700 students are slated for Tuesday, Dec. 9: the bi-annual Civic Engagement Forum and the Sense of Place Exhibit.

The Civic Engagement Forum, highlighting students’ work in courses with a civic dimension, will take place in Selvester’s Café from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the event, students will discuss their ideas for addressing pressing social and political concerns.

The Sense of Place Exhibit, featuring students’ work in courses from the Sustainability Pathway, a set of general education courses, will take place in a large tent on the Trinity Commons lawn from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students will present their work from classes including Self/Identity & Sustainability (UNIV 105); The American Environment (HIST 341); Religion, Ethics, and Ecology (RELS 247); and two others.

Both events are free and open to the public. Hot beverages will be offered at the Sense of Place Exhibit; please bring your own mug. Attendees of both events may participate in a short questionnaire to be entered into a raffle for local prizes.
