In collaboration with our long-time community partner Dove Springs Proud, UT’s Center for Community Engagement is excited to invite you to our upcoming Front Porch Gathering, Connecting UT Students to Community Priorities: Direct Service and Leadership Programs. This event will be held in Dove Springs.
Based on community priority responses, we are introducing attendees to the work of CCE’s student engagement and leadership programs. During this Front Porch Gathering, we will hear directly from student leaders and the CCE staff who manage direct service opportunities with communities locally, nationally, and internationally to discuss how Student Engagement programming connects students seeking volunteer experience with service-based community organizations.
We will also facilitate smaller break-out groups for community members to share and identify direct-service opportunities for students in the surrounding Central Texas area and provide input on additional ways these programs can continue to connect with and support the priorities of the surrounding communities.
RSVP by Monday, April 10, 2023
Dinner will be provided
ABOUT THE FRONT PORCH GATHERING
The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) serves as UT Austin’s “front porch.” This center fosters mutually beneficial community-university collaborations that further the university’s mission to serve Texas and beyond, with an emphasis on historically and currently underserved communities.
CCE’s Front Porch Gathering Series represents UT’s open door to the Austin community. These events connect UT faculty and resources with engaged community members and organizations in an effort to identify strategies, align efforts, and foster collaborative relationships that result in action. The monthly gathering works to address issues of equity, disparity, and access in Central Texas.
