IU Northwest Bicentennial Community Engagement Celebration

April 23, 2019

In collaboration with the Indiana University Office of the Bicentennial, IU Northwest will host a Community Engagement Celebration Summit on Tuesday, April 23, with activities occurring from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at various locations within the Savannah Center.

The Celebration, which is free and open to the public, is part of IU Northwest’s observance of IU’s Bicentennial, a multi-year, multi-campus program to recognize and chronicle IU history, showcase the university’s significant contributions to the world, and set a course for the next century.

The Celebration will include the presentation of the 2018-2019 Chancellor’s Awards, performances by the South Shore Dance Alliance, presentations by faculty and/or community partners, and will serve as the official launch for Collaboratory (a publicly accessible, cloud-based software for documenting community engagement activities).

Registration for the Celebration is encouraged, but not required.


Call for Proposals: IU Northwest faculty are invited to share their community-engagement initiatives in a 60-minute presentation and/or as a poster. Proposals are due March 5, 2019.
