The Center for Civic Engagement promotes films, seminars, and events geared towards gaining better insight into civic engagement.
The 2021 awards will be presented during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, April 13, 3-4:30 p.m. All members of the Illinois State University community are invited to attend the ceremony. During this time we will have a presentation from the McLean County Museum of History about the history of activism at Illinois State, and we will recognize those who have supported and advanced civic engagement at Illinois State University. We will also honor this year's Civic Engagement Award winners.
To attend the ceremony, please register online. If you have questions or if you need an accommodation to fully participate in this event, please contact Harriett Steinbach at (309) 438-1100 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Please allow sufficient time to arrange the accommodation.
Join us along with the Office of Sustainability on Thursday, April 22 at 7:00 p.m. for a free screening of Seeding Change. Seeding Change is about "triple bottom line" businesses that consider the social, environmental and financial impacts of their companies and address some of today’s most challenging issues. This award-winning documentary empowers viewers to be part of the solution by voting with their dollars and supporting the brands and products that align with their values. Register online to attend.
Deliberative Dialogues are guided conversations on a political or controversial topic. This model of conversation removes polarizing positions and one-sided lectures by simply asking participants to investigate specific solutions to an issue through the help of an issue guide and facilitator.
Learn more about the Deliberative Dialogues program and request one for your class or group.
We'll also be offering a campus and community Deliberative Dialogue on February 23 as part of our Exploring Wicked Problems: Community Safety and Justice series.
