UMass Dartmouth accepting nominations for Community Civic Leadership Award

Award to recognize community member who has demonstrated sustained commitment to civic engagement

The University dedicated the hall within Woodland Commons in honor of Reverend Lawrence in May 2014 in recognition of his spiritual and civic leadership on the SouthCoast.

UMass Dartmouth’s Leduc Center for Civic Engagement is currently accepting nominations and self-nominations from members of the community for the Community Civic Leadership Award. This award recognizes a community member who has demonstrated a sustained commitment to civic engagement. Nominees will be judged on the depth and scope of their impact on the community or public policy. A $500 award will be given to a community-based organization or cause of the award recipient's choosing.

In addition to the community award, the University will also recognize a faculty member and student, who have demonstrated a commitment to civic leadership and engagement. The awards will be presented at the Reverend Dr. Robert Lawrence Civic Engagement Summit at April 15 at 8 a.m. at UMass Dartmouth’s Woodland Commons.

The Civic Leadership Awards honor those who have achieved special distinction in this area. This award also calls attention to the good work being done by the members of the UMass Dartmouth community and throughout the region and nation.
