Civic Engagement

Civic engagement can take many forms—from individual volunteerism, community engagement efforts, organizational involvement and government work such as electoral participation. The Nexus Center Office of Community and Civic Engagement provides programs, events, lectures and webinars on a wide variety of local and international issues where institutions of education can affect change and create partnerships of impact. 

FSC Nexus Center Office of Community and Civic Engagement also encourages students to register to vote. We are committed to civic learning and democratic engagement.
