Community Collaboration Celebration

The Pacific University Community Collaboration Celebration honors the special partnerships between Pacific University students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members and features a recognition component to especially celebrate those involved with civic engagement work, diversity, sustainability, or student field experiences/practicum.

2019 Celebration

Hosted by the McCall Center for Civic Engagement this year’s event will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 from 4-6pm in the Multi-Purpose Room of the University Center. We appreciate RSVPs by April 21st to help us manage the event, but RSVP is not required to attend.

We welcome recognition of individuals and organizations who have shown excellence in collaboration within Pacific University and in partnership with surrounding communities. The recognition form is currently closed for the April 30, 2019 event and will re-open in Fall 2019. 

Event History

In years past, we have enjoyed honoring our work with specific awards in different categories. However, in order to include more kinds of partnerships in our event and make our recognitions both easier to submit and easier to manage, we are shifting toward more of a “shout-out” type recognition program instead of awards.  However, the McCall Center staff will continue to honor one person, program, or organization each year with our Bevin McCarthy Spirit Award for Civic Engagement.

We appreciate all of our past award recipients (pdf) and look forward to celebrating with our community at this year’s event.
