Bard Center for Civic Engagement Celebrates 10 YearsThe Bard Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) celebrates its 10th anniversary by honoring community partners. The festivities will take place on Friday, September 24, 4pm to 6pm, at Blithewood lawn on Bard’s Annandale campus. All New York State COVID-19 guidelines will be in place. Attendance to this event is by invitation only.
Civic engagement is at the core of Bard’s institutional mission, reflecting the fundamental belief that higher education institutions can and should operate in the public interest. CCE initiates programs; fosters sustained partnerships; and supports and connects student, faculty, and staff of Bard’s local, national, and international networks as they work to make a difference in the civic life of their communities.
The work of CCE would not be possible without the dedication and generosity of community partners. This year, the 10th anniversary celebration recognizes the following individuals and partner organizations:
