UMW Kicks Off Civic Engagement Grant Initiative

On March 21st, representatives from UMW’s administration, faculty, staff and students came together for the initial meetings of the grant-funded civic seminar, “Civic Engagement: Recasting and Drawing Upon a Wider Net.” The purpose of the meetings is to bring together stakeholders from UMW and the local community to explore and strengthen the role of civic engagement within UMW and with the broader community.
