Dr. Mary Kayler (Director, Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation), Dr. John P. Broome (Assistant Professor, College of Education) and Christina Eggenberger (Director of Service, Center for Honor, Leadership, and Service) received funding to host a seminar entitled, “Civic Engagement: Recasting and Drawing Upon a Wider Net.”
