Join us for the presentations of the 2018 recipients of the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) Civic Fellowship Program. Presentations will take place on Monday, Sept. 24, and Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 3-5 p.m. in Tyler Haynes Commons, Room 305.

A Civic Fellow completes between 320-400 hours at one internship site while simultaneously undertaking complementary academic work under the guidance of a faculty or qualified staff mentor. (Exceptions may be made in cases where an organization permits only shorter internships of between 240-319 hours, as is the case for some federal government internships.) Civic Fellows have secured internships locally, nationally, and internationally in the arts, education, the environment, human rights, community development, political advocacy, public health, criminal justice, international diplomacy, and other areas.
