Spring Celebration of Service & Leadership - Dare to Do

Submitted by Caterina Rost on March 14, 2016 - 10:14am

University of Washington students Dare to Do! They take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to their on- and off-campus communities. Through service and leadership, students lead with humility and partner for impact while working together to strengthen communities.  

As a UW student, how do you Dare to Do? Share your service and leadership work at the Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 from 2:00-6:30 p.m. in the Husky Union Building (HUB). (Please note that students are encouraged to attend the entire event, but the time commitment for the gallery will be about one hour and fifteen minutes, between 2:45 and 5:30 p.m. Check in for presenters will be from 2-2:45 p.m.)

Students across all three UW campuses are eligible to showcase the ways they are involved in leadership and service at the annual Spring Celebration’s gallery of student projects. As part of the gallery, students present their engagement through a poster display and discuss their service and leadership experiences with other students, faculty, community partners and civic and University leaders.

Participating enables you to:

  • Connect with other students doing interesting and meaningful work on campus and in the community
  • Share your valuable service and leadership work with a diverse audience
  • Hear feedback regarding your project and presentation
  • Build your experience and resume

For UW senior Tara Ghassemikia, participating in last year’s Spring Celebration and learning how students are creating impact was “humbling and inspiring...This event gave me the opportunity to create and tell my story, and also receive valuable feedback about my project from my friends and strangers alike.”

All UW students — undergraduate and graduate — are invited to apply to present a poster in the gallery of student projects. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and projects are accepted on a space available basis. All applications to participate are due by April 18 at 5:00 p.m.
