University of Washington students’ dedication to community engagement and leadership will be recognized at the Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership on May 21 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Husky Union Building (HUB) on the UW Seattle campus. The annual event showcases UW undergraduates who serve and lead in their communities, both on and off campus,  to expand their boundaries and make a tangible difference in the world.  This year’s theme of “We>Me” will highlight student stories as they share how they have worked together to transform their campus and communities, develop collaborative leadership skills and learn from each other. In 2017-18, more than 6,000 students engaged in public service, volunteering an astounding 616,869 hours.

This year’s Spring Celebration features culminating poster and oral presentations from nearly 200 participants, including student participants in the Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center, Dream Project, Husky Leadership Initiative, Jumpstart, Pipeline Project, Mary Gates Leadership Scholarship and UW Leaders. The entire UW community and network of community partners are welcome to attend.

The Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership is planned by programs in Undergraduate Academic Affairs. The work of community engagement and leadership education at the University of Washington is sustained by community and campus partners throughout the region. Thank you to everyone who makes this event possible through time, funding, student support, participation and attendance.
