On January 24th, the Hixon Center joined Harvey Mudd faculty, students, and community partners at the ‘Voices of Engagement’ event hosted by the Office of Community Engagement. This annual gathering showcases the different ways in which HMC students work to improve our communities, empower people, and protect the planet.
An especially impressive example of engagement included a hugely successful Homework Hotline, to which students volunteered more than 1,400 hours providing free over-the-phone math and science tutoring for Grade 4-12 students. In addition, the 5C Prison Education Project connects students and faculty with nearby prisons to provide a truly impressive mutual learning opportunity. These were only two of many efforts recognized that day for their community engagement and volunteerism.
The Hixon Center participated at the event, informing attendees about our sustainability programs and initiatives while also soliciting feedback regarding potential sustainability efforts on campus. The suggestions compiled during the event will be enhanced by three informational focus groups that the Hixon Center is currently conducting among HMC students and faculty.
The Hixon Center thanks Gabriela Gamiz and Danny Ledezma for organizing another wonderful Voices of Engagement event, as well as everyone who stopped by and offered feedback. If you have any other feedback or ideas in regards to campus sustainability, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
