Civic Fellows is an elite group of 20 students who commit to engaging in civic service and advocacy for the duration of their college careers.
Chartered in 1997, the Civic Fellows is a unique service-based leadership development organization that aims to cultivate a lifelong commitment to engagement in civic issues.
Each year Civic Fellows' leadership selects five first-year students for membership. The program seeks a four-year commitment and requires regular attendance at meetings, participation in group service projects, and individual service. First-year students who have demonstrated an active interest in community engagement during high school are encouraged to apply in the fall. Upper-class students will be invited to join as occasions arise.
Civic Fellows is led by a four-member executive board elected by its peers at the end of each academic year. The President and Vice-President participate in the Hartman Engaged Leaders Program. Civic Fellows is supervised by the Coordinator of Community Service in the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement.
SIGNIFICANT CIVIC FELLOWS PROJECTS:
Rake and Run - Civic Fellows annually recruits and organizes DePauw volunteers to participate in its fall leaf removal program for Greencastle residents.
The Giving Tree - The annual Giving Tree Project provides local community families with holiday gifts they would be unable to provide on their own. In the past DePauw departments, offices, organizations and individuals have provided gifts for over 30 community families. CLICK HERE FOR GIVING TREE INTEREST FORM
Food Card Donation Project – This annual program collects the excess money from students' food cards to benefit the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry.
