Applications for the 2020 MSU Excellence in Community Engagement Awards are now available at https://tinyurl.com/MSUCEAwardapp. The MSU CE Awards recognize outstanding accomplishment in community engagement in the categories of Community-Engaged Service; Community-Engaged Teaching and Learning; Community- Engaged Research; and Scholarship of Engagement.
Community Engagement describes collaboration between MSU and partnering communities for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity. Communities are broadly defined as groups of people affiliated by geographic proximity, special interests, or situational similarities at the local, regional/state, national or global levels. The most outstanding example of a current community engagement project or program in each of the four areas will receive a $3,000 award to further community engagement efforts within Mississippi State’s threefold mission of teaching, research and service.
Any MSU student, faculty or staff member is eligible to apply. For more information about past winners and projects, please visit https://www.ccel.msstate.edu/about/excellence/.
