Plan your schedule for Pitt’s Civic Action Week: The Path to Joy and Liberation
Faculty, staff and students are invited to participate in the University of Pittsburgh’s Civic Action Week from Oct. 17-22.
The annual campus-wide event features educational sessions and action-oriented civic opportunities to increase institutional involvement in deepening Pitt community members’ understanding of systemic challenges. The solution: to create more inclusive spaces.
All activities at the in-person event — themed “the path to joy and liberation” — fall in at least one of these categories: community engaged learning and research, community organizing and activism, direct service, philanthropy, policy and governance, and social entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility.
