The Department of Political Science at CU Boulder is excited to announce that we will be hosting a Civic Engagement Fair for students!
10 am - 1 pm
The Civic Engagement Fair is targeted towards social science majors to connect them with opportunities to engage with their civic duties. We are especially focused on widening students’ concepts of what they can do with their social science degrees by connecting them with organizations that depend on civic activities to sustain their operations.
We define civic engagement as the act of participating in collective efforts to improve the culture and conditions of our world. Our guiding principle with this event is that it can be easy to fall for the trap that contributing to our political world is out of reach and not worth the effort for the average person. Indifference is a coping mechanism for disempowerment. Our goal in hosting this fair is to show students the wide array of opportunities to get involved and build community in civic spaces.
The event will be kicked off with presentations from two CU Boulder alumni; Boulder County Commissioner Marta Loachamin (BA Ethnic Studies) and Boulder Couty Clerk and Recorder Molly Fitzpatrick (BA Political Science).
After their presentations, students will get the opportunity to speak with representatives from a variety of on-campus, local, and statewide organizations.
