2021 Community Engagement Virtual Symposium

Each year, Partners in Campus and Community Engagement (PICCE) invites students and their mentors (faculty, staff and/or community partners) to present their collaborative work to build a better Spokane at the Student Symposium on Community Engagement.  The event convenes students and their mentors to present poster describing their work and detailing its impact on our community. Our celebration highlights the impact of community-based learning on both students and Spokane-area partners.

Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the members of PICCE decided to hold the 2021 Community Engagement Symposium asynchronously.

Poster submissions can be viewed here, and will be be physically displayed at the locations below.

  • April 5-11 The posters can be view at the Kress Gallery at the Riverfront Park Mall.

  • April 12-16 Select posters can be found at the various PICCE member college campuses.

We welcome you to view, celebrate, and enjoy our students’ collective accomplishments and creative contributions to Spokane.
