Civic Scholarship Initiative

The Civic Scholarship Initiative connects University of Puget Sound's faculty and students with citizens of the south Puget Sound region in projects of mutual concern. By connecting and partnering with regional organizations to identify projects the initiative provides real-world opportunities for students to engage in the local community to support achievement of organization-defined goals. 

Projects originate from either expressions of interest from community members or faculty or student requests. All programs promote the university’s educational, service, and research missions, and seek to bring the community and university together in productive and supportive collaboration.
