Based on the understanding that civic engagement is a vital part of a liberal arts education, the David ’69 and Sharon Johnson Center for Civic Engagement is committed to providing opportunities that allow students, faculty and staff to learn about and reflect upon their roles as active, informed citizens within the community.
By fostering a campus culture that inspires civic leadership and social responsibility, the center continuously supports our mission.
The center was dedicated in March 2014. Through David and Sharon’s support, more students have attended SU SPLASH pre-orientation and received scholarships for exemplary service-learning work.
Because of the work of the Johnson Center for Civic Engagement, we have been recognized on the President’s Higher Education Community Service every year since 2006 and have twice earned distinction.
