Community Collaboration Celebration

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. 

2020 Celebration

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 an RSVP is not required to attend.

Please consider nominating individuals and organizations who have shown excellence in collaboration within Pacific University and in partnership with surrounding communities. The deadline to nominate an individual or organization for recognition at the event is April 1st

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.
