The Center for Civic Engagement celebrates Illinois State University's core vale of civic engagement by annually recognizing individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions to civic engagement. The Civic Engagement Awards were first presented in 2017 by the American Democracy Project. Recipients are honored each year at the University's Civic Engagement Day event in April.
