RIT Hosts Civic Engagement Forum, Feb. 7

Follow RITNEWS on Twitter Service and community involvement are a welcome part of life at any university, but selfless individuals are not always recognized.

Four awards will be presented at a Civic Engagement Forum at Rochester Institute of Technology on Tuesday, Feb. 7. The event, held from 5-7 p.m. in the Clark meeting rooms, Student Alumni Union, will feature two guest speakers: Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy and Gladys Santiago, vice president of the Rochester City Council.

The Civic Engagement Forum is part of the Raise Your Voices National campaign. The forum provides a way for students and faculty who have dedicated their time on campus and in the Rochester community to be honored for their service and political achievements.

All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend this ceremony. Food and drinks will be provided, and guests will also have an opportunity to meet with the honorees and guest speaker at the event.

Phyllis Walker, coordinator of RIT’s Leadership Institute and Community Service Center says, “This is a great way to honor those influential within our midst—individuals who often go unnoticed and underappreciated.”
