Civic Engagement staff August 2014

Welcome to
Civic Engagement!


Civic Engagement collaborates with community-based organizations to prepare students to be socially responsible leaders and citizens through purposeful action, reflection, and learning. We are part of LILAC, a center that prepares Bryn Mawr's students to become effective, self-aware leaders in their chosen life pursuits. 

We run a wide variety of programs that include providing direct service (tutoring, tax preparation, mentoring, community gardening, leadership training, you name it) and reflecting on that service inside and outside of a classroom setting (Praxis). This dynamic combination of the practical and the academic helps shape students’ professional goals, gives them real work experience, and provides the Philadelphia metropolitan area with much-needed service.

We are part of why Bryn Mawr was named number one in the Washington Monthly annual ranking of U.S. colleges and universities that contribute most to society for the third year in a row.
