Civic Engagement Week

April 15–21, 2018

Being a Coug is a privilege; being civically engaged is a responsibility; being the change is a commitment. At the CCE, we love being civically engaged Cougs, and during Civic Engagement Week, we want to show you why! Civic Engagement Week is our time to recognize the WSU community’s commitment to making a difference and to provide even more opportunities for to you to stay informed and get involved. 

Take part in a service project, attend a class presentation, take part in Earth Day events, and attend the LEAD event featuring the President's Award for Leadership. Most importantly, thank a civically engaged Coug for all the good things he or she has done to make the world a better place.
