Apply to Work on Carnegie Foundation Project

Deadline: Sept. 24

Interested in working alongside the Public Service Committee of Student Council? We are working on a project to apply for the Community Engagement classification with the Carnegie Foundation. The Carnegie Foundation recognizes various universities for different achievements, but the Community Engagement classification requires input and applications from universities that wish to receive that classification. We are looking for a team of 10 to 15 students to work on applying for the classification during the fall semester. This is a great and low-key way to learn more about the Public Service Committee and help UVa become recognized for its emphasis on giving back to Charlottesville. If you have questions, want to learn more, or are interested in applying, contact Helen Phillips at ...
