Lee Pelton Endowed Fund for Civic Engagement supports important co-curricular service learning and outreach programs and student-initiated community partnerships. These valuable programs bring students closer to the community, further their sense of agency and civic responsibility, and allow for practical application of what they learn in class. Together, these funds support internships for CLA students; one with the governor's office and one with the state treasurer's office.  Applications will be available through Handshake during Spring semester.
