The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) has embarked on a project to document and celebrate the community service and engagement of College employees. Beginning in the next issue, each newsletter will feature a story about employees volunteering with community organizations, serving in local government, raising awareness around a social or political issue, volunteering for political campaigns, participating in community arts programs and other forms of engagement.
Last spring the CCE began asking staff members to share their engagement stories and to nominate other employees whose engagement work should be recognized. If you haven’t yet shared your story, or if you would like to nominate another employee, please visit our web form at https://www.amherst.edu/academiclife/cce/employee. We will contact anyone who shares their story or is nominated to get their permission before sharing their story with the campus community. If you prefer, we can share your story anonymously.
