CCE students from the 2019 Service Expo; the last time the event was held in person since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) at Eastern Connecticut State University will hold its Annual Service Expo and Awards Ceremony on April 18 from 2–4 p.m. in the foyer of the Fine Arts Instructional Center. This is the CCE’s first in-person expo since before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in spring 2020.

Students who have volunteered with more than 15 community organizations in the Windham area over the past year will present posters describing their work. Guest judges from the community, as well as Eastern faculty, staff and alumni will present awards for the best programs. The program will begin at 2 p.m. with keynote speaker Kim Silcox, director of the CCE.

Awards will also be given to the following individuals for their exemplary service: Sociology Professor Nicolas Simon (Service Learning Award) and Dianisi Torres of the Puentes al Futuro program (Community Program Award). Community Engagement Awards will go to Chinindozi Tucci, site coordinator at Windham Center School Before/After School Program; Education Professor Laura Rodriguez; and Muneeb Butt, volunteer at the Dr. Helen H. Baldwin Middle School Boys Mentoring Program and Shawn’s Cupboard.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCE transitioned its programming to a virtual or hybrid model. However, this past academic year has been fully on-ground, as the CCE has worked hard to return to normal operations.
