Upcoming Options for Education Hours

Civic Engagement Scholars have the option to count up to 10 of their 30 total civic engagement hours as education hours through attending (virtually or in-person) events or other programs related to any of the forms of civic engagement (i.e. - community service, political involvement, philanthropic giving, advocacy, social responsibility, or participation in associations). Please review the requirements page for education hours examples, and the below list also provides date-specific examples of eligible education hours activities. Scholars can attend activities beyond this list of options and log them as education hours if they feel the activities align with a form of civic engagement. Contact adrian.griffin@case.edu if you have questions on if an activity could count as hours.
