Community Collaboration Celebration
***In recognition of the COVID-19 "Stay Home, Save Lives" initiative in Oregon, all MCCE events have been put on hold, including the 2020 Community Collaboration Celebration.***
The nomination platform will remain open, and we encourage you to continue nominating members of our community who deserve recognition. We will strive to explore alternative ways to recognize this important work.
The Pacific University Community Collaboration Celebration hosted by the McCall Center for Civic Engagement honors the special partnerships between Pacific University students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Each year we recognize individuals and organizations who are engaged in effective community collaboration, either in the current year or accumulated over years of involvement with Pacific University.
This year’s event will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 from 4-6pm in the Multi-Purpose Room of the University Center. There are many ways to get involved:
Attending the Community Collaboration Celebration is the best way to support your peers and fellow community members. The program is always an inspiring reminder of the ways in which we can make a difference in the lives of people around us...a topic made even better with the additional of snacks, treats, and a hosted bar! Although an RSVP is not required to attend, it does help us manage the event.
You are also uniquely positioned to know members of our community who deserve to be recognized! Please consider nominating individuals and organizations who have shown excellence in collaboration with Pacific University and in partnership with surrounding communities. The deadline to nominate an individual or organization for recognition at the event is April 1st.
And for the first time, the Community Collaboration Celebration will also include a silent auction element. 100% of proceed will be donated to Metastatic Breast Cancer Research. Donations are being accepted until April 7th.
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.
