Students Develop Leadership Skills through Environmental Engagement

Students across campus are developing civic leadership skills through environmental projects this spring. From ConnPIRG’s office in the basement of Mather Hall to the Multicultural Affairs Council’s plot at the Trinfo garden to composting on Crescent Street, student work toward a more sustainable community is touching all corners of campus.

Several CHER programs are recognizing anniversaries in 2020 and 2021. We are reflecting on twenty-five years of community learning, twenty years of Trinfo.Café, twenty years of the Learning Corridor, ten years of the community garden at Trinfo, and forty years of the Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement. Last year also marked more than two decades of the Thanksgiving and Sponsor-a-Snowman holiday drives and the Jones-Zimmerman Academic Mentoring Program.
