Global and Civic office closed / service reduction until January 4th

The office of Global Engagement and Civic Wellbeing will be closed from December 21st - January 4th.  

Should there be need, Food Pantry resources have been supplied to Residential Life (Town House Commons Building) to support students remaining over the winter break.  When I return to the office in the new year, formal food pantry requests can once again be reviewed and filled to further supplement resources shared with Residential Life and additional regional food security resources are listed under documents on our Civic Engagement Pioneer Link.  

Our hope is to offer a few open hours in our Community Needs Hub (located in the ground floor of Peet Hall) a couple weeks prior to the start of the spring semester, which we will advertise once confirmed. For any wishing to donate while I am out of office, we have a large donation drop bin located on the 3rd floor of the SLC near the base of the stairs to the 4th floor. 

Thank you to all who supported our initiatives and kept our shelves and clothing racks stocked over the semester!  

Wishing you all a restorative break and a joyful launch into the New Year!
